Activity Overview

Underneath the larger umbrella of positive and negative words, describing quantity is a little more complicated than the other categories (people and things). The added complexity of the category merits its own focus and targeted practice. In this activity, students will practice using alguno and ninguno within sentences. Before students begin this storyboard, review with them the concept of only having a singular form on the negative side, as well as the difference in application between ninguno and ningún (and their positive counterparts). Each row in the storyboard should be dedicated to a different form of the words alguno and ninguno.

To extend or further the activity, you could require as many as five rows — a feminine and plural, a feminine and singular, a masculine and plural, a masculine and singular with the noun, and lastly, a masculine and singular without the noun. The activity instructions included only ask students to complete one example of the feminine and one of the masculine.
