Bloques de Lenguaje, an UN-Stacking Game I love playing stacking blocks in therapy but my students often got frustrated with how easy it is to knock over (and some of my students would knock it over or bump the table on purpose). I wanted to figure out a way to play this game without as much frustration! This is how Bloques de Lenguaje was born (original product in English available too). Now includes a Google Slides version with moveable pieces, great for distance learning, teletherapy, or a no print option (see the video preview to see how it works). I also just added a mini Bloques de Lenguaje file to download to use with mini tumbling towers blocks (I found some on Amazon)
This activity covers the following language objectives using functional vocabulary in Spanish.
• Categories (name the category, name items in a category, which one doesn’t belong)
• Compare/Contrast (with 2 options: same/different on separate tiles or same/different on the the same tile).
• Wh-Questions (who, what, when, where, why, how, and mixed)
• Defining (with visual cues: what category, what does it do, what does is look like, what is is made of, what do you do with it).
• Describing (with five senses visual cues)
• Present Progressive Verbs
• Past Tense Verbs
• Multiple Meaning Words
• Blank Templates (Name the Category, Wh Questions, Defining, Describing, & a generic blank template).
• Fillable (type-able) blank page
Over 40 mats!
→ Materials: stacking blocks game (wooden stacking blocks/tumbling tower blocks). You will also need to select one of the Language Blocks Mats that target your student’s objective.
→ Game Set up: Stack the blocks up like the traditional game (three blocks together, alternating directions per 3 blocks…like the image above). Pick the Language Blocks mat that you need for your students and place it in front of them.
→ Game Play: Start off by telling your students this isn’t the regular stacking block game (where you take blocks off and stack them back on top). Tell them this is an UN-stacking game!
Each player will carefully remove a block out of the tower (they are not allowed to take one of the top blocks until the tower is down to 2 layers or no other blocks can be removed without it tumbling down). Then they get to choose a block on their mat to put it on. The student will answer the target question/task and then place the block over it.
→ The object of the game is to fill up your Language Blocks mat as much as you can before someone knocks over the tower. This will provide language practice while playing a fun game!
