Now that the students have learned the verb TENER (see my post on the game ¡séis! here), they have been learning to talk about descriptions of people. What better way to practise talking about descriptions than playing the Spanish version of Guess Who?! Here are photos of my students playing the card game in class today.
Here is the visual support that the students use to help them play the game.
I love this simple activity for practising dates with my students in both French and Spanish class. The students each have a bingo card and a board marker. The teacher calls out dates randomly from the list and if the student has that date on their card they cross it out. The first student to cross out all six dates on their card is the winner and they have to say those six dates back to the teacher in the target language in order to win their prize. The students listen intently to the dates that you are calling out and they also practice the use of dates being formatted numerically with numbers assigned to each month i.e. may = 5. Download the bingo cards for free here, you will need to print and then laminate (if you want to be able to reuse them). I really enjoy giving out prizes and stickers from my rewards jar (see picture below). The reward jar is available for purchase here.
