Continuing with our last blog in regards to food, today we present you a fun game that is great to practice vocabulary and increase vocabulary. Instead of just playing Bingo and calling out the word in English and having them find the word in Spanish, this activity uses pictures of the item and they have to find the correct word based on a sentence in Spanish describing the word. Not only does it help them study the vocabulary by looking for the words, but it also increases their fluency as they hear and must interpret the clues.
Rather, than playing as a whole class where the teacher reads the clues and all students play at the same times, we break our students into small groups. This way other students have to be responsible for reading the clues. It also allows each group to think more independently as sometimes some students can’t hold back their excitement and blurt out the word in Spanish, which takes about the thinking from their classmates.
27 vocabulary words have been chosen for this activity, although you can easily add different words that are part of your unit’s vocab
