Lesson 7 covers the opposites in Spanish for kids. Click here to see the week-by-week listing, and to access my still-in-process unit plans. (Each lesson provides enough material for multiple classes.)
Lesson 7 Goals: I can describe people and things.
Target Structures: hace frío, hace calor, triste, feliz, grande, pequeño
Review: Sings the songs learned so far and do the ¿Cómo te llamas? ball chant.
Activity 1: Introduce hace frío and hace calor with motions. You could show the Opuestos PPT or use real objects.
Activity 2: Play Hace frío, Hace calor. Have one student close their eyes, and hide an object. Say hace calor if they are getting closer, and hace frío if they are getting farther from the object. This might take quite a bit of modeling, but will be a fun review or closing game in future lessons.
Activity 3: Project and tell the story El gato y el perro. Stop to ask questions and check for understanding as necessary.
Activity 4: Introduce grande and pequeño, and triste and felíz with motions. Practice the words by using real objects or using the PPT above.
Activity 5: Project and tell the story El patito pequño. Stop to ask questions and check for understanding as needed.
