AMI instructions- March 30-april 17

Update!!!! I am changing the instructions for the AMI work for March 30-April 17.  Instead of one activity per day, I am now going to assign 3 activities per week.  I am giving you a little break!  Please do not stress about this...do not worry about accents or being grammatically correct, just have fun with Spanish!  Writing prompt #3 is quite easy and fun.  You can use the verb es(is) to describe a friend, the verb tiene (has) to tell me what your friend has, etc. Here is an example:  I will describe Mrs. Brandi Jones.  Es alta.  Es simpática. Es morena.  Tiene 3 hijos.  Tiene un perro.  You can also make sentences negative: No es baja.   Remember, you must write 5 sentences about each friend.  The 5 sentences count as 1 activity.  You may repeat this activity using different friends.  I am here to answer questions for you.  Please email me your completed activities as you finish them.  I miss you and love hearing from you!

Until we return to school, you must do three activities per week.  You may either do a listening activity or a writing prompt.  I would really like you to do some of each.

 

Instructions for both activities are included in this document.  Please email me your work or send it to me via Google classroom.  alicia.satterfield@perryvilleschool.org

 

 

AMI Day Listening Activity  Instructions

Spanish listening activity for AMI days:
You must listen to 15 minutes of Spanish. You can listen to an activity that is 15 minutes long, or you can break up your listening into smaller segments. You must fill out this paperwork for each activity. For example, you could watch a short video that is 15 minutes long, or you could listen to 5 songs that are each 3 minutes long. It does not matter what you do as long as you listen to 15 total minutes each day. You can document all of your activities on paper using the information below. Activities may not be repeated. All of the items listed below must be accounted for. Bring your paperwork back to school. 
fecha (date)__________________________________
*tipo de actividad (type of activity)_____________________________
fuente (source)___________________________________________
If your activity is a song, I need the name of the song and the artist.
*nombre de la canción (name of the song____________________________________________
cantante o grupo (name of singer or group)__________________________________________
*If your activity is a movie, short film, video clip, etc.., I need to know the name of what you listened to or watched.___________________________________________________________
minutos (minutes)_______________________________
For each activity, you must write down 5 Spanish words you heard.

 

25 Writing Prompts- You may choose 1 prompt.  Write 5 sentences per prompt.  Some prompts may be repeated as long as you vary your answers.  For example, prompt 3: you may write about different friends.  Depending on how many friends you have, this prompt could be repeated many times!

 

1) Write a one-paragraph biography of your life so far. This can include a variety of past tenses to describe habitual and one-time actions, as well as tenses to describe events that happened before or after another event. You can also practice using sequencing and transition words such as primerodespués, and entonces. 

2) Describe your family. Not only will you be using family-related vocabulary, you’ll also get practice describing age and occupation.

3) Create a written sketch of your best friend.  Make use of physical and personality descriptors (alto, rubio, amable, cómico).

4) Recount a joke or funny event. This will challenge you to correctly use colloquial expressions as well as unique vocabulary that will take you outside of the box of typical Spanish vocabulary.

5) Relate a specific event, either historical or personal, that occurred. Then rewrite it in the present tense

6) Write an ad for something (a roommate, an item for sale, etc.). This will help you practice describing cost and specific details (for example, size or shape), as well as expressing requirements and commands in a polite way.

7) Write an opinion piece in which you express your subjective opinions, wishes, and feelings about a controversial issue. Spanish 3 only for this one!

8) Discuss an issue that affects the public (a drought, an electricity outage, etc.)

9) Imagine you are a king or queen — what would you want people to do?

 10) Write a dialogue between two people. Use question words to form interrogative sentences, and make sure the other person responds with the appropriate verb form (for example, if the question refers to “you all,” the response to use is “we.”).

11) Write a short story. Try to make it as descriptive as possible while also including lots of action verbs to move the story along. Have fun with it; it can be a crazy story with a creative twist or unexpected angle! You’ll certainly improve your Spanish reading comprehension if you write enough of these!

12) Review a book or film. 

 13) Write an instructional paragraph about how to do something (arrive at a certain location using the bus, cook a particular dish, etc.). Tailor the formality of your words to your intended audience.

14) Write a letter in Spanish to a long-lost love. What would you say to this person to express your anguish, your delight, your memories, and your regrets?

15) Write a paragraph introducing yourself for a job. Describe your education, skills, motivations, and interests.

16) You completely forgot to do a huge assignment that your teacher is now collecting — what can you say to explain why you don’t have the assignment to turn in? What compromise can you request in order to not receive a failing grade?

17) Create a short poem — it doesn’t need to rhyme. Try reading a few poems (check out Pablo Neruda, for example) to find inspiration.

18) Pick an object you know well or have in front of you to observe, then describe the item as fully and descriptively as you can.

19) Describe an ideal world .

20) Write a letter to another foreign-language student. In the format of a pen pal letter, explain what you like about learning Spanish, what you find difficult, what you hope to use Spanish for, and why you decided to learn a foreign language.

21) Convince someone to adopt your position on an issue. Use persuasive language (en mi opinión es necesario….) to convince them of the strengths of your argument and the weaknesses of theirs. You can choose a political topic, a personal decision, or anything else that can be argued for or against.

22) Write a short gratitude note — what are you grateful for today? Express your thanks with words of appreciation.

23) Introduce a reader to your town, city, or region — what’s particularly unique and interesting about it?

24) Where have you traveled to that was interesting? Describe your trip, your travel partners, your activities, and your experience of this new place.

25) What goals would you like to accomplish in the future? If you could do anything, what would you do?
