Let’s look at some of the activities you can use.Questionnaires can be used on their own or in conjunction with picture posters, charts or picture books. Many themes and structures can be taught this way.
Questionnaires: Let’s say you are teaching ordinal number; you can have the students discuss where they live; for example, have the students ask each other:
¿Vives en un apartamento? - Do you live in an apartment?
If the answer is “Yes’, then student A could ask:
¿En qué piso vives? - What floor do you live on?
Student B could then reply
Vivo en el primer piso - I live on the first floor.
Student B then asks student C the question, and the reply could be
Vivo en el segundo piso - I live on the second floor.
The activity could be extended to the students looking at a picture of a hotel, or having one of the students draw a hotel on the board. They can number the rooms, to get a practice of cardinal numbers at the same time. Now they ask each other questions like
¿En qué piso está el cuarto número 16? - What floor is room 16 on?
A student or students can reply together:
Está en el tercer piso - It’s on the third floor.
You could also use questionnaires to have students talk about the past, after you have taught the Past tenses; for example. having them recap what they did for their holidays, or what countries they have traveled to, are good examples:
¿Estuviste en España el año pasado?
or ¿Haz visitado a España?
No, nunca he estado en España.
