I love to create fun activities for my students because let’s face it, our students are asked to get a lot from a textbook, and sometimes they just need a little play with the language! I created these practice activities for los quehaceres as a fun way to integrate our vocabulary and grammar skills while we learn about los quehaceres in Spanish class.
These practice activities will have your students enjoying their chores unit! They give your students an opportunity to play while practicing language skills. It’s also a fun way to incorporate teaching your students all about chores and house vocabulary.
Tener Que y los Quehaceres Story
This short reading is a great way to practice chores and “tener que” in Spanish! This resource includes a short reading about a boy who has a creative solution to his household chores written in comprehensible language. The reading includes vocabulary supports at the bottom of the page to help your students be successful. Great practice for chores and house vocabulary!
If you have a mix of in-person and distance learners, this digital version of the story and activities might be a better fit for you! Students listen to the story while they read, then answer comprehension questions to check their understanding!
¡Corre en Círculos!
¡Corre en Círculos! is my absolute favorite way to get students to practice a concept while getting them up and out of their seats. Students answer the prompt using the image on the bottom half, then find the answer around the room. When they find the answer, they go to it, and complete the next prompt, repeating until they have completed the circle! This activity includes two practice options: Students see an image and a subject as a prompt, then have to connect the image to the correct chore phrase. The second option includes a subject and an English chore so they conjugate tener and translate the phrase. Click here to learn more about ¡Corre en Círculos!
Find Someone Who..
This speaking activity is a great way to have your students share about their own lives. Students try and find others to fill out their sheet asking each other questions about their chores. There is also a follow up written activity for students to write sentences using the information from their classmates in the third person. Great additional practice!
