Play this game with your Spanish 2 students to practice the vocab and skills found in Chapter 1A of Realidades 2. I've included as much of the vocab as I can. Please check out the preview to see what it looks like! I do delete some slides from the preview to avoid plagiarism, but it will give you a good idea of what's in there.
This is an interactive game in a Power Point that you can project from your computer and play on the screen or share with your students for them to play in small groups. The game has five categories with four clues each. The clues get more difficult as the money amounts increase. The game has hyperlinks from the home slide to each of the clue slides, from the clue slides to their answers, and from answer slides back to the home slide. When you click on the dollar amount link from the home slide, the color of the dollar amount will change so that everyone can see that the clue has already been picked. If you want to play the game more than once, close and reopen the file in order to make the money amount colors reset back to the "unpicked" color. You'll have to keep the time limits for the kids to answer and keep score, but the game does the rest.
The categories include:
-Verbos Regulares Has clues that ask students about the regular verbs from the repaso page. For example, ¿Cómo se dice…? I discuss y They (fem.) explain for $400
-Objetos de la Sala de Clase Has mostly picture clues with the vocab words such as "las tijeras," "la grapadora," "el carnet de identidad," etc.
-Verbos con Cambio de Raíz Has clues that asks students about the stem-change verbs from the repaso page. For example, ¿Cómo se dice…? You (informal) understand y They ask for help for $600
- Afirmativas/Negativas Has clues about the palabras afirmativas y negativas such as algo, nadie, etc. The easier ones ask just for the words, and the harder ones ask for them in context. For example, ¿Cómo se dice…? some rules y not any seat for $600
-Sorpresa Has clues that ask about vocab that I couldn't fit into the other categories. For example, ¿Cómo se dice en inglés...? ¿Conoces a mi profesora? for $200.
When I've played Jeopardy-type games with my classes, I've put them into groups of 4-5. I go around the room in a certain order and call on groups to choose a clue. They have a time limit to answer, and if they get it wrong or don't get it in time, the next group in the order can steal it. If the second group can't steal it right away, the next group can steal, etc. This helps to keep everyone engaged because they might get to steal. You can do it whole-class with three larger groups or with groups of 3-4 where each group has their own laptop. The game can be played in a variety of ways--whatever works for you and your kids!
