This 9 page activity packet steers students towards attempting to start a conversation in various ways. Each page has a unit focus and a focus set of prompts that lend themselves to being worth a 2 point statement as suggested by NYS Regents guidelines. (If you are not familiar with NYS guidelines, this mostly means it's a compound sentence!) Made primarily for level 3 Spanish this document could be used for any world language class with a few quick edits. Examples of focus phrases are; In order to, without, before, after, I think that, I know that, I believe that, etc.. You could hand this out as one packet or you could break it up into units and use it intermittently!
