Vocabulario I A

Vocabulary Quiz Preparation:
1. Before you begin to study, check to make sure you have all of your materials.
• the list of vocabulary we have studied (a handout I’ve given or from my website or your notebook) Be sure they are spelled correctly.
• index cards
• my website vocabulary exercises https://srarose.wordpress.com
• the fanfold vocabulary sheet
• whatever is best for you
2. Pronounce the vocabulary words out loud as you write them down..
3. After practicing 10-15 minutes, move away from it for a few minutes. Take a brain break — stretch, run or walk for 10 to 15 minutes, get some water and a snack — but no TV or computer. Return to the vocabulary with a new pen color or different pencil and paper, reviewing your words.
4. Set aside 10 minutes before you fall sleep to review your vocabulary one more time. Close your notes, fluff up your pillow, close your eyes and feel the excitement of being prepared for the test. As you fall asleep, relaxed, your brain begins moving and massaging the information throughout the working memory all night long. Our brains are actually able to work harder when we sleep if we study what we need to know before closing our eyes for the night.
5. Go over our Diario entries to see how those words were used in our practice.

Visualization technique – this has worked very well; especially for those with dyslexia. You can use a vocabulary list or make flashcards to take with you to study this way.
• Look carefully at the spelling of the word you are studying.
• Close your eyes and visualize the word written in your handwriting across your forehead.
• Out loud spell the words as you normally would.
• Out loud spell the words backwards (starting at the end and going to the 1st letter)
• Out loud spell the words as you normally would.
• Write the word.
• Check to be sure you were correct.

Vocabulary exercises on my website.
Be sure to try all of these exercises and end up with the fourth one, writing the words.
• The first practice is like flashcards.
• The second practice is recognition.
• The third practice is listening.
• The fourth practice is for spelling the words correctly.

The fanfold method – You can download a paper (above) with this practice or make your own with columns for Spanish, English, Spanish, English, Spanish, etc.
• Write no more than 5 words in Spanish in a column.
• Then write the English for those words.
• Check to see if your answers are correct.
• Fold the Spanish list in the 1st column back. Look at the English words and write the Spanish.
• Check your answers.
• Fold the 2nd column back. Look at the Spanish words and write the English.
• Check your answers.
• Continue until you know them well.
• Then you can go on to the next 5 words and do the same thing.
• When you are done, look at the English of all of the words and say and write the Spanish one more time.

My Mother used to help me this way:
• I used to study the vocabulary first.
• Then I asked my Mother to say the vocabulary words in English.
• I spelled the Spanish words.
• Afterward, I’d practice those that I had missed, including the accent marks.
