I wanted to come up with an activity that would not only allow them to learn some of these important phrases, but also that would be genuine and allow them to get to know one another better.
I gave each student one of these papers and asked them to consider how they felt about each item or activity.
Next week, when we work on speaking and writing, these papers will contain genuine information that students will be able to talk about in Spanish. I will use them to introduce the structures that use the indirect object pronouns le, nos, and les as we talk about what different people have in common and what we have in common with others.
It can also be easily converted into an information gap activity.
The best part was that the students were SO INTERESTED to see what they had in common with each other. They even wanted to see what they had in common with me. One of my girls was very excited when we got 9 matches. I was not expecting that!
