    Hello everybody,

    How would you say in English the expression "hoja de actividades", that is, a series of activities that the teacher gives to the students in a sheet to do in the classroom or at home?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe what you're referring to is a "worksheet." A worksheet is any sheet that a teacher gives out with problems that a student has to complete on their own-- it is often homework but can also be given out in class when a teacher wants the students to work independently and give her a break from teaching for a few minutes.

    I would say "activity sheet", although it sounds like a literal translation. Maybe "homework sheet" or "homework list" would also apply.

    Well, I can assure you that in the U.S. it is called a worksheet-- this is the common and natural way to say it-- but I can't speak for other countries.

    I prefer "worksheet". It´s closer to the idea I had in mind. Thank you both.
