Looking for a fun review game to practice preterite -ar, -er, and -ir conjugations? My students absolutely LOVE this game! Some prep is required- you must write the answers on notecards and place them around the room (I tape them to the walls). I also make it more challenging by purposely misspelling some of the verbs and putting incorrect verbs on the walls. If you have a large class, it may be helpful to write the correct answers on TWO notecards (to keep everyone from fighting over the notecard!)
Directions: Students play in groups of 3-4; Students may work together to come up with the answer, but there can only be one "runner" per group (the one who goes to "¡Búscalo!" (looks for the card). To keep the same person from being the "runner" every round, I tell my students that the same person cannot go twice in a row. I project the question up on the board, and the first student to find the note card with the correct answer and bring it back to me wins a point. I have even included some "twists" such as "The youngest person in the group will be the next runner", etc. Students LOVE running around the room searching for the right answer! They also refrain from yelling out the answer or location of the card to their teammate because then other teams may get to the card first! I also tell my students that if they bring me the wrong card, they have to go put it back on the wall, then find the correct one (i.e. they can only bring one card at a time!)
I hope your students enjoy this game as much as mine do!
