7th-grade students have been busy learning Chapter 3 vocabulary that includes school supplies, clothing, colors, shopping phrases, and the numbers 100-1000. After they took a quiz on these words, students completed a hands-on, “real world” activity where they were given an allowance for back to school shopping. Students had 2000 pesos between themselves and a partner and needed to shop for school supplies and back to school clothes. They first jotted down what items they were interested in, and then created a final draft of their shopping lists in complete sentences in Spanish! I was very proud of their hard work and wonderfully constructed sentences. Here are some pictures of our shopping trips and shopping list composition!
