Las Formas y los colores - Los Animales y los colores
What a busy week! We've discovered that in Spanish ALL NOUNS such as shapes, animals and any object we can think of is either masculine or feminine.
So, when using colours, SOMETIMES we need to make some spelling changes depending on the object we are describing.
Would you like to test yourself?
1. Can you write sentences saying what shape it is in the grid below and what colour it is?
For example : El triángulo es negro. / / La estrella es roja.
2. Can you look at the grid again and say what you can see or what there is in the grid?
Look at the examples below:
Puedo ver (I can see) UNA estrella roja en E4. Puedo ver un triángulo negro en C4.
Hay (There is) UNA estrella roja en E4. Hay UN triángulo negro en C4.
Write all your sentences in a comment at the end of the post.
If you want a further challenge, do the same with animals and colours.
Examples: El oso es amarillo. La gallina es azul.
Puedo ver un oso amarillo en C1. Hay una gallina azul en E1.
Understanding Gender in Spanish
Hola Y5. Bienvenidos.
I hope you've had a great time in your Residential. Now, it's time to focus on your learning again.
This week, we continued learning about gender in Spanish. Quite tricky, I know, but you've done a great job identifying clues that let us know whether a noun is masculine or feminine. For example, the use of "el" o "la", "un" o "una" before the noun, the use of "éste" o "ésta" or the last vowel of the noun "o" / "a".
Let's watch this interactive video that explains gender in more detail...At the end of it, there is a game for you to classify nouns into masculine or feminine. Let me know your score in a comment.
Now try this game sorting colour into masculine, feminine or both. Remember that the clock stops only when all the answers are correct.
Can you now write sentences to describe what colour these animals are?
¿De qué color es el tigre? El tigre es marrón.
¿De qué color es la jirafa? La jirafa es amarilla y negra.
As you type the answers, make sure you begin your sentence with a capital letter and you finish with a full stop. Otherwise, your answer will be incorrect!
¡Hasta pronto! ¡Felices Vacaciones!
¡Feliz Año! Bienvenido 2014
Great to see you all. This term promises to be another great one especially with Residentials coming soon!
