Word sort activity using Spanish loan words "borrowed" from Spanish.
This activity provides Spanish students with an opportunity to build on their background knowledge about the Spanish language during the first week of school or with a substitute teacher. This activity could also be used at any time during the year or in an English/Language Arts classroom to develop English vocabulary (because all the words are also used in English) or a Social Studies/History unit. Separate pages to sort could also be split into two separate lessons.
Pages include one page of headers, two pages of words to sort (96 words total), an answer key, a skeleton lesson plan outline for a substitute, and a how-to page. Cover page and credits/thank-you not included in page count.
I have included some words with very slight spelling variations, and noted the variations between English and Spanish.
