This activity begins with the statement "Doy gracias por" and then lists the extended Spanish alphabet. Students are to choose something for each letter for which they are thankful. For example A- árboles, B- baloncesto.
The chart format allows a small space for students to illustrate the words as well (optional). The activity concludes with the statement "Mi cosa favorita es _" where they can summarize with their absolute favorite thing.
This activity allows students to freely explore Spanish nouns and expand their vocabulary using words that are meaningful to them. It also allows students an opportunity to reflect on the many positive things in their lives.
One could modify this activity by limiting vocabulary to specific themes (food, non-tangible things (peace, friendship, etc)), verbs and more. Some letters are more challenging (ñ, w, x) and perhaps you want to allow students to leave a certain number blank or use English loan words.
Students could complete this chart individually, in small groups, or as a class.
