Spanish chats about the weekend!


Spanish chats about the weekend! (Speed dating style!)

At the start of the class the students do a warm-up where they fill out the top section of the handout.

Finish each sentence with a verb in the past tense to tell what you did on the weekend.

El viernes yo ____________________________________________.

El sábado por la mañana yo__________________________________________.

El sábado por la noche yo__________________________________________.

El domingo yo__________________________________________.

Yo __________________________________ durante el fin de semana y fue muy divertido.

Yo comí ______________________ durante el fin de semana y fue muy delicioso.

The bottom section seen below, is what they ask their classmates:

  1. ¿Qué hiciste el viernes?
  2. ¿Qué hiciste sábado por la mañana?
  3. ¿Qué hiciste sábado por la noche?
  4. ¿Qué hiciste el domingo?
  5. ¿Hiciste algo divertido? ¿Qué?
  6. ¿Comiste algo delicioso? ¿Qué?

We then re-arrange the desks “speed dating style” where the students ask each other these questions and record their answers on the questions and answers sheets.

This activity is great for exposure to los verbos and a great tool to practice Spanish speaking.
