Level of class
(e.g. Beginner)
Number of
10 Spanish 6 year olds of similar ability levels. Four girls and two boys.
Make-up of the
class (e.g. age,
strength /
mixed abilities)
Aims of the
For the students to recognise and understand the connection between the
spoken alphabet i.e. how it sounds and the visual alphabet i.e. being able to
read and write the individual letters of the alphabet that go with the sounds.
Secondary aims As this is a writing lesson the secondary aim would be for the students to be
of the lesson
able to legibly produce up to six letters, forming the names of animals.
Anticipated difficulties are that the students may be at slightly different levels
of ability. If there are errors at the start of the lesson that need to be
addressed i.e. if they dont recognise and read the letters flashcards correctly
we may not have sufficient time to practice writing the letters or animal words.

Strategies to

Or, the lesson may be too simple for them and they are actually ready to
practice writing more complex words.
I will prepare pictures of 2 popular animals (cat and dog) with the words
already printed in large text underneath. They can then practice less letters
i.e. c a t or d o g.
Or, they may finish the activity easily and quickly so I will prepare some
additional worksheets or colouring sheets that include animals and letters
which spell more complicated names i.e. h o r s e or t i g e r.
These students enjoy spelling tests so I can use the animal flashcards for a
spelling game if we end up with time spare.
