This is a version of the PING game where the students are hearing only Spanish and then searching for a picture that matches the Spanish word they hear. So for example working in groups of 3:
-the caller says a clothing item in Spanish (los calcetines) and the 2 competitors search for a pair of socks on the game board
Print on cardstock and laminate for multiple uses.
I always like to get the students actively engaged in my classroom with a friendly competition. My students enjoy the challenge of a competition and I am always trying new ideas.
I call this game "PING." The object of the game PING is to burst the bubble with the correct Spanish word before the other player.
In order to burst the bubble, one must:
(1) make the sound chosen at the beginning of the game, for example,
“PING” (sounds must be unique),
(2) call out the word in Spanish that is inside the bubble you are bursting,
and (3) color the bubble with your color marker.
For an added challenge, the caller uses a description of the vocab word rather than the word. Example: These are worn on your hands when the weather is cold, the challengers would look for the word "los guantes.”
There are 3 game participants, 1 caller and 2 challengers.
At the end of the game, the person with the most bubbles colored with their color marker wins.
