Product Description

Your brain fires off associated words and ideas like: water, sand, beach, summer, heat, in my case- my mom's pool at her apartment complex. Martina Bex called it a "mental representation", and I imagine it like a word cloud that is unique to each one of us!

Word Clouds for INFO GAPS:

Activity one, day one:

I made a sheet with clouds and asked them to pick 9 target words to write into the "Palabra" section. 

  1. Draw a picture or symbol of the word
  2. Write as many words as they can that they associate with that word in the target language:
  3. Do this for the remaining clouds. We did the first one together to model it.

Day two: Have students partner up and use their Spanish words to describe the target vocabulary. i.e. say "court, orange ball, 5 players, tall, I like the BULLS" Target word: BASKETBALL. Their goal is to have their partner guess the vocabulary word, go back and forth!

I have done this info gap many times, but I had made the clues for the targeted word. I liked having the kids create their own word clouds to connect to the language!
