PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With this product you receive a weather glossary which is formatted into 16 different categories headings of 4 columns, 2 pages of over 150 Spanish words and English definitions; all related to conversations that you will have about weather and climate. You receive also 2 pages of lesson plan activity ideas, a colorful weather image and a page of questions and open-ended responses which are formatted for your document camera, smartboard or to use as handouts for seat work. The vocabulary has been prepared with season, calendar and topographical terminology to allow the teacher flexibility in lesson preparation.

You will find that this glossary although designed as a foundation tool for Spanish levels 1 and 2, can be used at any grade level as introductory or review and will be an essential tool for any of your conversations. These vocabulary words also are designed to coordinate with my Environmental Ecology Vocabulary Glossary for adaptation to Spanish levels 3 and 4.

Thematic weather reference vocabulary is adaptable to meet your needs and you the teacher, can designate the category or quantity of words that may be needed for the unit. Students will be inspired to learn and internalize words and expressions that are important to them in their discussions.

Textbook vocabulary lists do not have a sufficient quantity or variety of terms that I or my students wanted in order to build and expand ideas. Too often, the activities were for rote memory exercises but, not sufficient for expanding into daily use. For this reason I developed my own glossaries and let the students choose the vocabulary that had meaning beyond the textbook exercise.

Every effort has been made to ensure that all vocabulary is common usage however since language evolves rapidly, please share your feedback and suggestions for newer expressions.

As always, Maestra Mapache has first created these activities and used in her own classroom. Secondly these activities are designed to be adaptable to any of your lesson units.

This vocabulary sheet may be purchased individually and in the future will be available as a bundle with dialogue activities.
