Uno se tiene que ir | One's gotta go | Discussion prompts in Spanish

An engaging discussion-based communicative activity

Multi level

One's gotta go! This popular discussion prompt is perfect for communicative language classes, and this no-prep resource makes it easy to start these conversations with your classes!

On each slide, students will see three items that belong to a single category (three different fruits, three different colors, etc.). We've included 45 different prompts! Students need to ponder the question, "If one of these were to cease to exist, which one would I choose to eliminate?". Allow your class to vote, or ask them to volunteer their choice and defend it with reasons--based on their level of linguistic proficiency.

These slides can be used as a daily warmup for class (one per day) or on a regular basis (such as every Tuesday), or many you can discuss many of the slides in a single class period. Another option would be to use single slides as brain breaks, designating three areas in your room as the different options to give students a chance to get up and move!

To make this product even more fun and versatile, we have provided dozens of different background images for the slides, allowing you to change the appearance of the slides with just a few clicks!

  • My students LOVED this resource and looked forward to debating the options each day! We used as a bellringer and did one slide per day.

  • This was a useful time-saver to supplement my current materials. Fun for speaking and adapable to many activities. Good value for the price.

  • Great pictures and ideas. Fun way to start class. Would be great to have sentence frames in Spanish on the slides to guide students in creating their reasoning for/against. But overall students are enjoying them!

  • Love that I can have this opened on my computer and when I think the kids need a brain break, I can quickly do a question. I have the kids go to a certain area in the classroom based on which item has to go. It provides good conversation on why they picked the answers they did.

  • My students really enjoyed this discussion. We also changed it once and played "One has to stay," which was equally as fun. Great discussion starter!
