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

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. If there are more than 8 students, you may print another copy of the game and add the corresponding number of four-of-a-kind group of cards. Shuffle well and deal 4 cards to each player. All cards must be dealt. All the students put down one card, discarding to their left. Then, they all take the card on their right. They keep doing it, silently, until they all reach four of a kind. The last student to reach four of a kind is the burro (loser).

Todo sobre mí (Mi personalidad) - Card Games

Todo sobre mí (Mi personalidad) - Card Games

This game is a way for the students to practice asking for and giving basic personal information (name, nationality, age, birthday, siblings, pets, hobbies, physical and character traits etc). There is a beginner version (with answer prompts) and an intermediate version (with clues). Print the document one-sided, laminate it and cut out the cards. Distribute all the cards randomly to the students. Select a student to begin by reading his card out loud and then putting it down. The other students listen attentively to each question, answer it if they have the answer card and then they read the next question. The game is over when all the cards are down. It is a great game to practice the newly taught vocabulary, as well as speaking and listening skills.

This is a set of resources to introduce describing others and oneself.

It then goes on to introduce 16 characteristics with match ups, snake sentences and reading comprehensions. The final activity is the creation of a wanted poster for students to complete.

Describir personas - Card Game

Describir personas - Card Game

This game is the classic " I have... Who has ...? " game, designed to practice the description of people´s hair and eyes and the verbs "tener" and "llevar". 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 (for example, En la casa de Pinocho, solo cuentan hasta ocho, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) 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’s 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!

Describing myself and my best friend

Describing myself and my best friend

This resource will help your students describe themselves and their best friend using a range of adjectives (ending in o, e and r) and qualifiers. There are 2 vocabulary sheets with vocabulary learning tasks and 5 worksheets which include tasks such as gap fill, structuring sentences, identifying errors, spelling from memory, translating, writing and speaking. A crossword puzzle with clues in Spanish will help improve your students' reading comprehension and spelling. I have included a speaking/listening task (with instructions) for your students to do in pairs. These worksheets have been meticulously designed and are at least as nicely presented as any resource you might buy from a respectable publisher. Please don't be put off by the preview image which at times looks distorted with text not fitting into boxes or lines missing from tables (due, I think, to the inclusion of tables/grids/text boxes); the actual resource looks professional in appearance when downloaded. Written by the author of Heinemann's Mira express 1 and 2 Resources and Assessment Grammar Sheets.
