I always like to play this game at the beginning of a unit to introduce my students to the pronunciation of the new vocabulary in a more exciting way. The whole point of this game is repetition so they can hear the word and practice saying it in a less stressful environment. They really get into it! is involved.... but you will need a Smartboard or a projector to project the image of the grid of pictures.
: All you have to do is point to one of the pictures and then say the word in Spanish. If you are pointing to the picture and saying the correct word, the class (as a whole) should repeat after you.
- For example, if you point at a picture of an apple and say "la manzana," then the class should repeat after you and say "la manzana." If you are pointing to the picture and saying the INCORRECT word, the class (as a whole) should NOT say anything. For example, if you point at a picture of an apple and say "el plátano," the class should NOT be repeating after you.
- If someone says something, then the teacher gets a point. However, if they remain quiet and correctly identify that the picture does not match the word, the class gets the point. Play for as long or as little as you like. Once you have played enough, you can ask for volunteers within your class to run the game.
