Upper Elementary Students Present in Spanish About Their Pets

“Mi Mascota” Presentations

By Lynda Jackson, Inly Spanish Instructor and Spanish Language Director

As an end-of-the-year project last spring, Upper Elementary Spanish students worked on oral and written presentations about their pets. We now have a terrific video of the presentations to share with you.

Students were asked to prepare storyboards with pictures that would depict a story about their pets (real or imaginary!).  They were to answer specific questions about the pets such as:

  • ¿qué es tu mascota?
  • ¿cómo se llama?
  • ¿cuántos años tiene?
  • ¿dónde vive?
  • ¿qué come?
  • ¿qué le gusta hacer?
  • ¿qué no le gusta hacer?

In addition to their photos, each student prepared a written report, which was used as a guide to practice for their oral presentations.  After practicing with classmates and teacher numerous times, the students were ready to present. The results were terrific, as evidenced by the attached video clips.

  1. Great presentations…. now if I only spoke Spanish they would have been even better. Latin and French were my languages. I guess I should have taken Spanish after all. Great job!!
