Video: The hundreds in Spanish, step-by-step (with worksheet)

I have observed that many students in my most advanced courses still struggle with numbers above one hundred. Here is a video I made to go over things step-by-step.

This first video covers 100s through 900s, and the next one will be practice (with memes!) with the thousands up to the millions!

Here´s a PDF activity sheet for a comprehension check after the video! Los números 100 – 999 PDF Activity Sheet

Here´s the answer key! Los números 100 – 999 Answer Key

¿Te caigo mal? (Verbos GUSTAR)

caer mal

* Use caer bien / caer mal in terms of liking or disliking a person.

(If you use GUSTAR to express liking a person, it tends to have romantic connotations, as in you “like like” them).

*Importar is used to express that something matters to you, that you care about it.

* “Caer bien / caer mal” and “importar” work like GUSTAR verbs.

Fun descriptions with SER writing activity: ¡Mentirosos!

Mentirosos activity handoutMy Spanish 1 students are working on descriptions with SER right now, and I’m always trying to find ways to switch up the usual “¿Cómo eres?” activities for practicing personal descriptions.

In this activity, Peter Griffin and Voldemort are “mentirosos” who have written very inaccurate dating profiles.

Students first re-write each profile to make it more accurate, and then write a new profile for a character of their choice. Correcting the profiles first serves as a model for writing the last profile on their own.

Finally, students swap to share their (often comical) character profiles and peer edit.

Peter Griffin and Voldemort are very recognizable for my college-age students, but the characters could be changed to best suit your students’ interests.
