This is a great, interactive activity that gets students moving around the room.
24 different combinations of cards are available - 24 different subjects and 24 different infinitives of AR verbs. Each student is given either a subject or verb card. Students then need to travel around the room and meet up with a classmate who has a subject or verb.
Once a subject and verb team has been created, those students work together to write a sentence with that subject and verb. Students are asked to meet up with 12 different subjects/verbs and write 12 distinct sentences. After meeting with a partner, students need to switch cards so that they do not keep repeating verbs or subjects. I also leave the leftover cards up front so students can switch their card when they want!
Be sure to pass out an equal number of subjects and verbs at first. For example, if you have 20 students, pass out 10 subjects and 10 verbs to start. If you have an odd number of students, a pair of students can buddy up and work together to find a match and write sentences.
The chosen verbs align with the first 2 Unidades of En Espanol, but of course can apply to any Spanish 1 class.
