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?

La palabra de la semana
La palabra del mes
1.
2.
3.
La palabra de la semana means word of the week. La palabra del
mes means word of the month.
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!)
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!
¡Haced la fila!
¡Los alumnos de la clase,
haced la fila!
