ESL for Spanish Speakers is a nice interactive project that can be done on the first weeks of school so students get to know each others, where they come from, what they like, and much more.

Dear ESL Teachers... This document is meant for all ESL levels with an extra help for those who only speak Spanish, your beginners. The document has a section in English and another one just in Spanish.

Let’s see what it contains:

1) Study Guides provided in English and Spanish

2) Worksheets + Audio Practice:

1. For students to translate in Spanish the sentences given in English. A link to my Quizlet is provided for the students to hear and practice how to say the sentences in English correctly. This can easily be done from their phone, laptop, tablet, computer, making it just like they enjoy doing it, very interactive!

2. Now that they know the sentences, students are to be paired and, with the worksheet provided, they are to prepare themselves to introduce another student in English to the class. This is so much fun and it can be done...

 with a PowerPoint presentation
 with handmade posters
 with online presenters, such as Pretzi, Visme, emaze, etc.

3) Directions for the project are clearly given in English and additional copies are also provided in Spanish to help your beginners.

4) Can they follow directions? Let’s find out with the special rule!

One of the challenges for many students is to understand the questions asked on quizzes, tests, and exams. A special rule has been added and this is a very good way for you to learn your students and see right at the beginning of the school year who reads instructions correctly and who may need some help… So the rule added is to simply not draw or use images of living things.

5) Rubrics in English and Spanish are also provided.

*** Note that the same document is available for your students who only speak French. It can be found at ESL for French Speakers Ice Breaker Project with Who Are We? Qui Sommes-Nous?
