(list the main stages). For example:
Clase de hoy
 Saludo
 Presentación del tema
 Práctica, etc.

Material preparation: Make sure the materials and equipment are ready for the class
(test the markers, arrange the worksheet on the desk, make sure the internet connection
works and the speakers are set in the right volume).

Classroom organization: Organize tables or desk in “U” shape.

Introduction Greeting: Greet students enthusiastically and ask them how they are doing today.

Introduction to new topic by playing hangman: Tell students that they are going to
learn a new topic, but they will have to discover it by playing hangman. Immediately,
write on the board one line for each letter. Then, invite students to say letters of the
alphabet to discover the topic. This game will serve not only as an introduction for the
topic, but as a review of the alphabet.

Sharing the plan and purpose of the class: Confirm the topic and point out the main
activities of the class based on the plan previously written on the board. Also, explain
the importance of learning vocabulary of school supplies.

Main activities Brainstorm to diagnose previous knowledge: Ask students to place 3 of their school
supplies on their desk/table and to tell you how those school supplies are called in
Spanish. Write the words on the board under the title Útiles escolares.

Learning vocabulary through a video: Explain students the importance of increasing


vocabulary when learning a second language and motivate them to watch the video.
Then, present the video “Spanish for Kids - School Supplies - Útiles Escolares” and
invite students to pay attention to the words and the gestures made by the clown.
Watch the video a second time. Ask students to tell you the words they remember from
the video and make the gesture shown in the video. Write those words on the board to
complete the list of Útiles escolares.

Vocabulary in context: Ask students to read the following paragraph in silence:


¡Hola! Soy Karla García Porras. Soy de Costa Rica. Tengo 15 años. En
Canadá, soy estudiante en “University Hill Secondary”. Yo tengo una mochilla
grande. En mi mochila tengo un lápiz, un borrador, dos plumas, dos libros y un

After reading: Ask students to underline the 6 school supplies mentioned in the text
and to answer the following questions: ¿Cuál es el nombre de la estudiante? ¿De
dónde es la estudiante? ¿Cuántos años tiene la estudiante? ¿Cómo se llama la escuela
secundaria de la estudiante? ¿Qué tiene la estudiante en la mochila?

Checking answers and review: Ask for a volunteer to write the answers on the board.
Check the answers with the whole group. Use the information from the text to review
personal pronouns and uses and conjugations of Ser (to be) and Tener (to have).

Introduction to new sentence structure (deduction method): Ask students to


identify the 2 sentences from the text that contain new structures:
 Yo necesito el lápiz y las plumas para escribir en mi cuaderno.
 Yo necesito los libros para leer en mi clase de inglés y español.
Ask questions in such a way that lead students to discover the new structures:
Necesitar + school supply + para + infinitive
(Conjugated)

Grammar explanations: Explain the conjugation of Necesitar. Call the attention on


the meaning of the preposition para (in order to) and help students to notice the use of
infinitive after this preposition (…para escribir. / …para leer).

Fixing and building more vocabulary (writing): Ask students to find a partner to
work on a worksheet (See page 5). In this worksheet, students will need to:
1. Identify 6 school supplies in a picture.
2. Associate school supplies-action. They will be given two columns. In the left
column, they will have a list of school supplies. In the right column, a list of
actions commonly associated with these school supplies. For example, they
will have to match Lápiz (pencil) with escribir (to write)
3. Complete sentences with the name of a school supply and its use. For example:
“Victor necesita _______ para_______.” Check the answers.

Oral practice: For each part of this section, the teacher will model first to help
students to understand what they are required to do. After presenting the instructions,
teacher will clarify doubts and questions related to instructions. If any new words come
out during this oral practice, write the vocabulary and its translation on the board.
a. What do you have on your desk/table? Ask students to place some of their
school supplies on their desk/table. Then, move around and ask students: “¿Qué
tienes en la mesa?” Students are expected to answer: “Tengo _____ y ______.”
What does your classmate have on the table? Ask students what their
classmate (on their right or left) have on the table. This student will answer the
question and the student who possesses the objects will show them to class as
he hears them being mentioned.For example:
Teacher: Rachel, ¿qué tiene Frank en la mesa?
Student: Frank tiene un lápiz, un cuaderno, un libro y una pluma.
(Frank will show these objects as soon as he hears them being mentioned).
