Super engaging game to practice IR verbs vocabulary. This game is very effective because it is very hands on and it involves a one on one competition.
To play this game
♣ Put students in groups of 2 and have them use one set of vocabulary cards.
♣ Have each pair put their desks facing each other to have more desk space.
♣ Have students spread out all their cards with the Spanish word facing up.
♣ As the teacher calls out the vocabulary word in English, students will have to find
the Spanish word on their desk. When they spot the word, they will take the card
off the desk. The first one to grab the card, gets to keep it.
♣ The teacher will keep calling verbs until there aren’t any cards left on the desk.
♣ The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
These cards can also be used to play Concentration, Go Fish, or Old Maid (you would have to add an "odd" card). The cards cover IR verbs in Auténtico 1 .
