Reinforce preterite tense verb endings for IR stem-changer verbs (also known as sandal verbs) like morir, dormir, seguir, and pedir in Spanish with this fun game of Cucharas or Spoons.

OBJECTIVE: Collect all seven cards for one verb (infinitive + all six forms- for example: CORRER, CORRÍ, CORRISTE, CORRIÓ, CORRIMOS, CORRISTEIS y CORRIERON) and/or not be the person left without a spoon!


  • Teacher prep instructions
  • Student instructions to display on game day,
  • 63 game cards*
  • 6 blank cards just in case you want to add your own verb or lose a card
  • A piece of decorative paper to copy onto the back of game cards so kids cannot see through them,
  • Student score sheets (both a Spanish and a Spanglish version)
  • Writing & speaking extension activities

*Included irregular preterite IR stem-changers: morir, dormir, seguir, mentir, pedir, preferir, repetir, servir y competir. The vosotros form is part of the set, but you could easily remove all the vosotros cards and instruct students to collect 6 instead of 7.

Teacher prep:

1. Print product.

2. Copy game cards and decorative paper back to back. Make enough sets for groups of 3-4.

3. If possible, laminate for durability so they can be used year after year!

4. Cut cards and clip individual sets together (or place in plastic baggies).

5. Copy enough score sheets for every student in the class.

6. You will need spoons for this activity, either plastic or metal. I keep a box of 48 plastic ones in my room just for this game.

This game is part of my Cucharas Super Bundle which features 16 sets at a discount of 20%! That's hours and hours of engagement and fun! Click HERE to see it!
