Family Vocabulary – El vocabulario de la familia – Lesson 11


In this video lesson, student PDF, and auto-graded Google forms quiz your students will be taught an extensive list (46 terms!) of family vocabulary. A short introduction video, in English, sets the stage for your students as they prepare to learn this vocabulary in Spanish. Then it’s off to the instructional video, which will present it all in Spanish and offer opportunities for practice and repetition (For access to the videos only, click here). The reason I made this list so long is because I wanted to be sure to give everyone the words they need to describe their own unique families. Teachers will, of course, assign as much or as little as they desire from this list. 

After the video lesson comes the interactive student pdf, which recaps the content and skills presented and includes a link to the Quizlet set to help students as they memorize the vocabulary. Students further solidify their knowledge by completing a Mastery Track Activity, also included in the pdf. Finally, the included google forms quiz will allow the student (and you!) to check their knowledge and get feedback on their progress.
