An activity for students to explore and listen to sound effects and contextsSugerencia de uso
1. Use the beam projector to show the video. Try to have a good set of speakers to help with the activity since it is ‘sound effects’.
2. Ask students how good they are at identifying sounds. Give them an example, ‘bark’ or ‘meow’, and ask students what that is, a dog, and a cat.
3. Tell students they are going to identify the sound they hear in the video so they need to be quiet and pay close attention. Nobody can interrupt or make any noises until the activity is finished.
4. There will be some words they don’t know in English, however, they can write it in Spanish only if they do not know the Word so encourage them to make an effort and use their vocabulary.
5. Decide how much of the video you want to use since it takes 5 minutes. Feel free to use the examples you want. Here’s the list of sounds for you to choose from,
0:10 Bowling 0:23 Flushing 0:46 Owl Hooting 1:00 Pen Clicking 1:19 A Plate Smashing 1:29 Vacuuming 1:46 A Chicken 2:02 Running Faucet 2:18 Clock Ticking 2:32 Ducks 2:47 Cutting Paper 3:07 A Jet 3:26 A Pigeon 3:41 Cat Purring 3:56 A Lawn Mower 4:15 A Wooden Swing (It says Trees in the Wind but let's be honest here) 4:30 Electric Drill 4:43 A Crow
6. Check answers with the class and repeat the sound if necessary.
7. If students wrote in Spanish, give them the equivalent in English and ask them to write sentences using the new words in context.
8. Monitor and offer help as needed.
9. Choose students at random to read their sentences aloud and invite volunteers to read their sentences to compare different possibilities.
