Empower students to stay in Spanish by scaffolding their communication by talking around the word [circumlocution].
Es una persona que... Es un lugar donde... etc are all listed on one side. At the bottom, there is a reminder to focus on form in the second clause.
These handy 2 x 3 inch "cheat sheets" help students to describe or explain when negotiating meaning with other learners and the teacher during whole class activities.
KEEP THE COMMUNICATION FLOWING!
No more waiting for learners to search for paper sheets or teacher having to feed the language strategies.
Using these circumlocutions on a daily basis has strengthened and accelerated my students acquisition of grammar and lexicon. Yours can too!
If your classroom focus is to avoid English translations and build proficiency in the language, you and your students will love these cards!
Pass these out to kids as random door prizes or as needed for students who struggle.
Simply print out as many sheets as you want in color. Laminate them to last years and years.
