Embedding the language All this language is designed to be used as part of everyday classroom practice. You could do the register with si and no on some days ( Hacemos la lista for the register is in the Greetings PPT). For this topic, embedding the language would be the focus as opposed to the language being taught as such. There are example activities however to help teachers reinforce the language being used.
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.
¿ Por favor o No, gracias? Pupils look at the following slides and decide if they would like it or not by saying either Por favor or No, gracias You could make this more active by having 2 sides of the room with each designated as the Por favor side and the other as the No, gracias side. Ask pupils to then choose a side which matches their opinion and say their opinion (Por favor or No, gracias) as a group. You could follow this up with asking them to choose pictures from cut outs or create their own drawings under the headings Por favor and No, gracias
¿ Por favor o No, gracias? Mirad las fotos y decidid si Por favor! o No gracias!
¿ Por favor o No, gracias?
La palabra de la semana La palabra del mes 1.La palabra de la semana means word of the week. La palabra del mes means word of the month. 2.As a way of building up classroom vocabulary gently, you could have a word of the week/month which everyone will use in class (or out of class too if they like!) 3.Once you move onto your next word, keep the previous words going! This way the pupils will build up their language gradually!
The Big Buenos días Challenge! 1.Set pupils the challenge of saying Buenos días, hola, gracias, por favor and de nada (or whichever vocab you like) to everyone they speak to. 2.You could get them to tally mark how many they do in a week and have an inter-class competition.
Jacobo dice… Jacobo dice… is Spanish for Simon says. It works exactly the same way whereby if you say Jacobo dice… (Jack said) at the start of a command then everyone has to do it. If you just say the command then pupils should stand still. If they do the action, they then sit down. Sample commands are below: ¡ Jacobo dice escuchad! (pupils can cup hand to ear) ¡ Jacobo dice mirad! (mime searching) ¡ Jacobo dice haced la fila! (pupils get into a line) ¡ Escuchad! ¡ Mirad! ¡ Haced la fila! ¡ Sentaos! ¡ Levantaos!
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.
¡ Haced la fila! (to the tune of farmers in his den) ¡ Haced la fila! ¡ Los alumnos de la clase, haced la fila!
