Materials Needed

Warm Up

  1. Begin by opening the slideshow and introducing the can-do statements.
    Hola, ¿cómo están? Estoy ____. Vamos a empezar el lab de hoy con los can-do statements. 
  2. After introducing the can-do statements, go over some warm-up questions. The questions ask students what their favorite topic this semester was and which was the hardest. Have students explain why they liked one the most and why one was hard. They can answer that it was the vocabulary, the topic itself, etc. This is just to have students reflect on the semester and remember all the topics they talked about.
    Para el calentamiento, vamos a hablar un poco de este semestre. Quiero saber sus opiniones. ¿Cuál fue su tema favorito? ¿Cuál fue el tema más difícil? ¿Por qué te gusto uno y por qué fue más difícil el otro? ¡Este calentamiento nos ayuda a recordar un poco todo lo que hemos hablado este semestre!

Main Activity

  1. For the main activity, students will play jeopardy. The jeopardy has vocabulary and questions related to each of the five topics they learned this semester.
    Para la actividad principal, vamos a jugar “Jeopardy!”. Este jeopardy va a ser un repaso breve de todo el semestre. El juego tiene preguntas de vocabulario y preguntas para charlar de los 5 (cinco) temas que hicimos este semestre.
  2. Students will take turns choosing a level and a topic. The 100-300 levels for each topic are all vocabulary. 400-500 are personal questions that must be answered in at least 1-3 sentences. If a student does not know the vocabulary word, the instructor should not reveal the answer so that another student may attempt it. If a student is not sure how to answer a question, the instructor must allow another student to attempt it as well.
    Cada uno de ustedes va a tomar un turno escogiendo un número y un tema. ¡OJO, los números más grandes son un poco más difíciles! Hay números que preguntan sobre el vocabulario y hay otros números que hacen preguntas personales que deben responder con 1-3 oraciones.
  3. The lab instructor should go through as many of the levels and topics as time permits. Five minutes should be allocated before the end of the lab to go over wrap-up questions.

  1. Wrap-up questions
  • ¿En tu opinión, ¿qué actividad fue la más divertida este semestre? (In your opinion, which activity was the most fun this semester?)
  • ¿Cómo vas a continuar practicando el Español? (How will you continue to practice Spanish?)

End of Lab:
