Today we reviewed direct object pronouns. My favorite way to present this grammar is with a game of "Lo veo!" The vocabulary we are working with currently is for traveling. (My text is Avancemos! 2). I recommend using your current vocabulary, just because it is another chance for students to make a visual and emotional connection to new words. Of course, you can do the activity with any four words.
Here are my words:
Masculine/singular: el avión Feminine/singular: la auxiliar de vuelo
Masculine/plural: los pasaportes Feminine/plural: las maletas
And here are the objects:
|Los objetos para jugar ¡Lo veo!|
I took pictures of each object and put them on my SmartBoard. Then I hid each object somewhere in plain sight in the room. When students entered they saw these phrases on the board:
|El "guión" para la actividad|
|¡Listos para jugar!|
"¿La auxiliar de vuelo?" "No la veo."
"¿Los pasaportes?" "¡Los veo!" And the game was on.
The student had to walk around the room, asking, "¿Los pasaportes?", and each time the class would reply, "Los veo." The closer the student got to the hiding place, the louder the class replied. It was a blast.
Here is a final picture: The flight attendant "hiding" on the bulletin board behind my desk. She couldn't have been in plainer sight, but it took forever to find her. I love it that they had to repeat such a challenging vocabulary word over and over and over again! I think she is going to live on that board from now on!
Have a happy week!
