This is a fun and interactive verb form activity that students play in a group of 2, 3 or 4. It is an inventive twist on classic memory.
-Begin by printing out the game board and the individual cards.
-Cut and separate the cards into two piles, subject/infinitive cards and verb form cards. On one side of the board, place the subject/infinitive cards face down, one in each box, so that the numbers are covered. The remaining cards go face-down in a pile on the “cartes” box.
-On the other side of the board, place the verb form cards face down, one in each box, so that the numbers are covered. The remaining cards go face-down in a pile on the “cartes” box.
-Each player picks up two cards, one from each side of the board. If the cards match the player keeps them and adds up the points that are under the two cards and keeps a running total of points throughout the game. For speaking practice the player can say a sentence with the verb form. If the cards don’t match they are returned to their spots and play continues with the next player.
-When a player gets a match he takes one card from each pile in the middle of the board and puts them (without looking at them) on the empty spaces and has an additional turn. This continues until the cards run out. Be sure to keep the subject/infinitives cards on one side of the board and the verb form cards on the other.
-The player with the most points after all the cards have been used wins.
