LOS COLORES WALT: to learn the colours WILF: Be able to say colours in Spanish (Level 1a) Be able to use colours as adjectives with pets (Level 2a) Fecha: Hoy es……de octubre
blanco marrónrosavioleta rojonegro amarillo azul verdenaranja gris COPY THE WORDS FOR COLOURS IN SPANISH AND ENGLISH INTO YOUR BOOK
ADJECTIVES (A describing word) COLOURS ARE ADJECTIVES AND ARE WRITTEN AFTER THE NOUN (THE PERSON, PLACE OR THING) Example: UN PERRO MARRON “MARRON” COMES AFTER “PERRO” SO IN SPANISH, YOU ARE ACTUALLY SAYING “A DOG BROWN”. LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLES AND COPY THEM INTO YOUR BOOK IN SPANISH AND ENGLISH…. THE FIRST ONE HAS BEEN DONE IN ENGLISH TO HELP YOU. YOU CAN WORK OUT THE REST ON YOUR OWN!
TENGO... (I have...) Un perro blanco = a white dog
Un gato Una araña = A cat = A spider Did you notice anything different about the Spanish word for “a” with pets from last lesson? Some of you may already have read this already. That’s right, one says “un”, the other says “una”. They both mean “a” so why are they different? In Spanish all nouns (person, place or things) are known as either Masculine or Feminine. Read the next slide carefully as it will explain more keywords
Every NOUN in Spanish is either Masculine or Feminine A noun is a person, place or thing. Any word that you can put the word “a” or “the” in front. In Spanish, the words for “a” and “the” are different, depending on if the word is masculine or feminine. ENGLISHMASCULINE FEMININE THE EL LA AUN UNA REMEMBER: It is the “word” itself which is either masculine or feminine. You might own a female cat, but the word for “cat” in Spanish will always be masculine. How do you know if a word is masculine or feminine? You have to learn them!! When you learn a new noun in Spanish, you will always learn it with the extra words “UN”, “UNA”, “EL” or “LA”. Just like you did with the words for pets. READ THIS SLIDE VERY CAREFULLY
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW IF THE NOUN IS MASCULINE OR FEMININE. IF THE NOUN IS FEMININE, IT HAS AN EFFECT ON THE ADJECTIVE. LOOK… UNA TORTUGA LENTA = A SLOW TURTLE BECAUSE THE WORD FOR TURTLE IN SPANISH IS “FEMININE”, YOU MUST ADD AN “A” TO THE ADJECTIVE
THERE ARE SOME OTHER RULES TO BE AWARE OF… IF THE COLOUR ALREADY ENDS IN AN “E” YOU DO NOT NEED TO ADD ANOTHER. THERE ARE ALSO SOME COLOURS WHICH ARE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WITH “FEMININE” NOUNS. THE TABLE ON THE NEXT SLIDE WILL HELP YOU.
MASCULINE FEMININE BLANCO NEGRO ROJO AMARILLO VERDE NARANJA VIOLETA GRIS MARRÓN BLANCA NEGRA ROJA AMARILLA VERDE NARANJA VIOLETA GRIS MARRÓN ADD “A” ALREADY HAS AN “E” DO NOT CHANGE”

SOME ANIMALS CAN BE MORE THAN ONE COLOUR. HERE IS WHAT YOU DO IN SPANISH… UNA SERPIENTE NEGRA, ROJA, AMARILLA Y VIOLETA
un conejo de indias..... un gato..... Un ratón..... EXERCISE 1. COPY EACH PHRASE INTO YOUR BOOK BY COMPLETING IT WITH THE CORRECT COLOUR. THINK ABOUT IF THE COLOUR NEEDS AN EXTRA “A” OR NOT.
una serpiente..... un pájaro..... un caballo.....
un conejo..... un loro............... Una tortuga......
