Learn to play Canasta! With this product you are receiving teacher instructions and lesson plans, 4 fill-in worksheets for your students of bilingual game terminology and a double-sided communication record keeping sheet for stickers or stamps. Social interaction is just as important as verb conjugation and grammar.
Why? Well, when you travel, you need some social skills for travel abroad; card and table games, ping pong or video games. What can you say? How can you interact with others in a social situation? It is not all, “Hello, how are you? What is your name? Where do you live?” What is our goal here? To simulate real-world social situations and to utilize a fun and creative way to encourage your students to speak Spanish.
This worksheet is written in a combination of English and Spanish. Although the expectation is that your advanced classes communicate in Spanish, the reality is that the non-native speaker can be intimidated by the fact that they are in a classroom with Heritage speakers. Build a sense of community with game days and let your students put their skills to use!
