Episode 16: La habitación 320
Ordinals, 100’s, possessives, the alphabet.
I don’t always think the alphabet is crucial for beginners (a few times watching the song below and the sounds will be familiar), but often it’s a requirement to teach. I think Bingo is the easiest way to get the particular sounds down. It’s included in my packet, or you can use my Bingo printable here. Dictate the letters and have the students write them down randomly, and then use the boards to play.
Game: Mano Nerviosa
I recommend this game for Episode 6 and 14 as well, but it can be used for 100’s with a twist:
Divide the students into groups of 2-6.
Ace = 100
2 – 10 = 200 – 1,000 (3 = 3,000, for example and 8 = 800)
Remove Jack, Queen, and King
Divide all of the cards evenly among the players, and use two decks if possible. One person starts by laying a card face up, in the middle, and saying cien . The play continues clockwise, laying down cards and counting. When everyone counts to mil, they start back at 100 and count up again. Anytime a number is placed in the middle that matches the number spoken, the players can slap the pile. The first person to hit the card gets the entire pile to keep. The first person to get all the cards in the game wins.
Here’s a video showing the game being played with numbers 1-10:
For practicing the alphabet:
