The verb "traer" is quite a tricky one for my native English speaking Spanish immersion students! Many of them have fossilized errors with the yo, tu, and el/ella forms, and often times they confuse the use of "traer" vs. "llevar". My kids need lots of opportunities to just repeat the traer verb forms correctly again and again, and these games help them practice doing this!
This pack contains two games. There are 24 cards included in each game. One is a “zip-around” type game to practice the yo, and él/ella past tense forms of the verb “traer." Each student stands in a circle and receives 1-2 cards, depending on the size of the class. One student starts by reading the question on the bottom of his/her card (¿Quién trajo…a la clase?) The other students need to look at the top of their cards to see if they have the corresponding object. If they do, they should form a correct sentence with the pronoun "yo" and the verb “traer” (i.e. “Yo traje_”) Then they read the bottom of their card and look for the next student.
The second set of cards is a matching game that focuses on the tú/yo past tense forms of “traer.” Students imagine they are having a party and some of the students have brought the same objects. The object of the game is for students to find the peer that has the matching card. They do this by walking around and asking each other the question “¿Tú trajiste…a la fiesta?” Peers respond to one another by saying either “No, yo no traje…a la fiesta” if they do not have a match or “Si, yo traje…a la fiesta” if they do have a match.
Lots of repetition and practice – but so much fun the kids don’t even realize they are perfecting their grammar!
