Printable Clothing Vocabulary Game

Printable Clothing Vocabulary Game

Clothing Vocabulary Games (1)
Studying La ropa in your classroom? Here’s a free printable dice game from my newest Game Pack in my TpT store. I am working on a series of game packs that teach vocabulary through images. I like to teach and practice vocabulary this way,rather than translating between English and Spanish words. Leave English entirely out of the picture with this dice game, and differentiate as needed. Some groups may simply need to say the name of the clothing they land on, while others might be required to say a sentence: “Yo llevo un abrigo en invierno,” or “Los zapatos son rojos.” Enjoy and please share if my printables have been useful to you!

The full game pack also includes cards for play Go Fish, I have… Who has?, Memory, Slap-it, and more. Using these cards, your students can stay in the Target Language the entire time as they learn. You can find it here:

Los animales – Ideas and  Freebie!

Los animales – Ideas and Freebie!

 

I have been busy updating my look on my TpT store, and just made a new 41-page game pack for learning animals. Here on the blog, I’m making a few pages of that available for free! I love games for introducing vocabulary. This pack includes games for Go Fish, Yo Tengo (beginner’s and intermediate), Old Maid, Concentration, and a board game. One of the sets also doubles as a flashcard set, which can be used for many other activities.

Los Animales Freebie

My freebie today introduces 36 animals, and here are more ideas for practicing them. These would be way more fun if you purchase my game pack (yep!), but you could make them work by writing the animals names in Spanish onto index cards or sticky notes.

  • Make labels with descriptions (tiene cola, puede volar, come pasto, etc.). Have the students sort the animals and see which is the most popular category.

 

  • As a warm-up, put the cards into a bag and have the students draw one or more cards at the beginning of class. Each students writes a description of his or her animal. When ready, the student (or the teacher) reads the descriptions out loud. Have the rest of the class guess which animal is being described.

 

  • Tape the word cards onto each student´s back. The students can walk around the room, and by asking yes or no questions figure out which animal they are (¿Soy verde? ¿Vivo en una granja? ¿Puedo nadar?).

 

  • Play 20 questions. Choose a student to draw an animal card out of the bag. The class asks him or her yes/no questions to see who can guess the animal first.

 

  • Watch these videos at VideoELE in Spanish. It gets the students’ attention to see the animals in action, and I frequently pause to ask questions (¿Es grande o pequeño? ¿Qué come?). You could also assign for homework:

To play:

¿Yo Tengo, Quién Tiene? (Groups of 18 or less)

Print, cut out,and laminate the cards. Pass out the cards to students. Any student you choose may begin. The student reads his or her card aloud, naming the object in the picture. The student who has the card asked for by the first student goes next. Simple, but effective!

I have a Zoo Animals games packet available at on my TpT store as well if you are interested in more first-week resources!

Apples to Apples // Manzanas a Manzanas

One of the first things I usually teach are adjectives. Especially when storytelling, I am constantly asking my students questions about the story or about pictures we are looking at. “Hay una familia. ¿Es una familia grande o pequeña? ¿Es una familia famosa? ¿El papá es alto o bajo?” To make all of that comprehensible, the students need to know their adjectives thoroughly!

I came across the idea of playing a homemade version of Apples to Apples as a way to practice adjectives and/or nouns, and it’s been a hit. The freebie I made includes the instructions, an outline for the students to follow as they speak during the game, adjective cards, and blank adjective and noun cards.

If your students are completely new and you only want to teach them adjectives, make the noun cards purely proper names– Tarzan, George Washington, Hawaii, etc. Otherwise, mix in vocabulary that your students already know (foods, animals, actions) to make it more challenging. Make sure you take a moment to discuss “ser” and making adjectives agree in gender and number so that this is a speaking activity as well. Enjoy and please share my link if you found this helpful!
