First section of this powerpoint recaps weather vocab from Early/ First level. If pupils are already secure, you could skip straight through to seasons. Please note.
Embedding the language Ask what the weather is like/ Season in Spanish at the start of everyday along with the date. While learning outdoors in differing weathers, I have described and recorded the weather, its effects and how it makes me feel and can relate my recordings to the seasons. SOC 0-12a
Sample activities You will find a bank of sample activities which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of activities and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class. You will find a set of more challenging activities in First Level Weather.
¿ Qué tiempo hace? Look at the following weather pictures. Listen to the audio description of the weather. Decide which Season they are describing
¿Que estacion? Mirad las fotos y eschuchad los descripciones de los tiempos ¡ Decidid que estacion es!
¿ Qué tiempo hace? Spanish weather rap. On the next slide is a rap about Spanish weather to the tune of a Black Eyed Peas song. Show pupils the rap – add actions if you like. Once you have taught pupils the key weather vocab, pupils can create their own weather rap. Pupils should choose a popular song they know the tune to. Then create a rap/song about the weather to that tune. These can then be performed/recorded as assessment at end of unit.
Explain everything app! If your school has ipads/ tablets you can use explain everything for pupils to create an exciting presentation about the weather. This link is from the digital learning team website which explains how to use the app. http://digitallearningteam.org/ipad/ipad-video- http://digitallearningteam.org/ipad/ipad-video- tutorials/apps-to-enhance-learning/ Pupils can demonstrate the vocab they have learned through drawing, writing and recording audio in French.
Songs and videos! You will find a bank of sample songs and videos which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of songs and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class. You will find a set of more challenging activities in First Level Days of the Week and Months.
You will find a bank of sample ICT activities which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom.
