In this game of ¡Pesca!, otherwise known as, “Go Fish!”, it is specifically made for the Spanish I “¿Quieres ir conmigo?” vocabulary unit from Realidades 1, chapter 4B. In this set, the Spanish and matching English vocabulary words and phrases are included. There are also three additional blank cards in each set for you to add your own vocabulary words.
In groups of 3 to 4 students, students will play together looking for matches of the vocabulary words or phrases. Each student begins with 5 cards. The conversation between the game players to reinforce using the Spanish language could go like this:
Student A asks student Student B:
• “Yo tengo la palabra “contigo”, do you have “with me”?”
Student B says either:
• Sí, yo tengo “with me”
• No, yo no tengo “with me”. ¡Pesca!
When the player says, “pesca” the other player needs to draw from the center deck of cards, just like in “Go Fish!” The goal is to get rid of the cards in your hand first or to end the game the greatest number of pairs.
