This Spanish Christmas matching game has multiple functions, can be used individually or in small group, and can be played in a variety of ways. After printing each game page on different colored paper, players will be ready to jump into reading. Cards are layed out facing down. Students turn over two cards(of different colors) and try to match the cards that include the same key words. Once they have found a match, they may keep those cards in their pile and take another turn. If no match is found, the next player has a turn. This game promotes information recall, main idea, memory, pronunciation, syllable practice, reading, comprehension, and also provides language for the holidays.
There is an instruction page in English and Spanish that can be posted for the students to review game rules. The game pieces are included. Lamination will ensure that this fun game can last for years to come. There is also a reminder page for the teacher. All of the game pieces are arranged in order so that you can refer to the original downloaded page as an answer key.
I hope that you enjoy this simple game during your holiday season.
