Main Activity - Role Play (15 minutes): 1. Divide the students into pairs. 2. Provide each pair with a role-play card that includes a scenario for a conversation. 3. Instruct the students to introduce themselves to their partner using the greetings and the Spanish alphabet. 4. Encourage the students to use the vocabulary and phrases they have learned so far. 5. Monitor the pairs and provide assistance as needed.

Quiz (5 minutes): 1. Distribute the quiz sheets to the students. 2. The quiz should include questions about greetings, introducing oneself, and the Spanish alphabet. 3. Allow the students a few minutes to complete the quiz individually. 4. Collect the quiz sheets and provide feedback.

Differentiation Strategies: 1. Provide additional support to struggling students by pairing them with more advanced students during the role-play activity. 2. Offer visual aids, such as flashcards or posters, to help students remember the Spanish alphabet. 3. Provide extra time and support for students who need it during the reading, listening, writing, and speaking activities. 4. Encourage students to use online resources or language learning apps for additional practice outside of class.
