Vocabulary Revision 1,2,3 - Card Games (Spoons)

These games are designed to revise the following basic Spanish vocabulary: seasons months days of the week parts of the day weather numbers clothes and accessories colors describing adjectives (peoplel) emtions INSTRUCTIONS The game is similar to Spoons. The objective of the game is to make four of a kind as soon as possible. In each group there is 1 picture card illustrating a particular farm animal and 3 sentence cards describing that animal. The game can be played in groups of 8 students. If there are less than 8 students, you must take out the corresponding number of four-of-a-kind group of cards.

El calendario - Card Game

El calendario - Card Game

This game is a Spanish version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice revising a unit on weather and clothes by asking and answering about seasons, weather, months, days of the week, birthdays, holidays, numbers, clothes etc. This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!
