Episode 15: Una excursión
The months of the year, questions words

Activity: Order the Months

Write the months out on large pieces of paper. Give one each to a set of 12 students, and have them put themselves in order without speaking English. If you have a large enough class, do two or three groups and see which group can finish first.

Game: Charades

Write the months out on small pieces of paper and divide the room into two teams. Choose 1-2 actors for the game. The actors draw a month and act out clues for which month it is. The two teams take turns guessing first. If one team gets it wrong, the next team can go. The first team to guess the month gets a point.

Game: Mano nerviosa 

I recommend this game for Episode 6 and 15 as well, but it can be used for the months with a twist:

Divide the students into groups of f 2-6.
Have several sets of cards (index card-size or smaller) with the months.

Divide all of the cards evenly among the player. One person starts by laying a card face up, in the middle, and saying enero . The next player puts a card in the middle and says febrero. The play continues clockwise, laying down cards and reciting the months. When everyone gets to diciembre, they start back at enero and recite up again. Anytime a month 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.

Also, if anyone loses all their cards, they can still slap in. Everyone is involved and engaged with a chance to win, right until the end!


This video is geared toward younger students, but it’s one of the better ones out there, I think!
