This document includes materials for 3 activities:
* Activity 1:
Each student gets a copy of sheet 1. One student begins by saying the subject and verb below Principio and the other student finds the the English translation the top of one of the squares. He/she says the subject and verb in English, and then reads the Spanish verb(or subject and verb ) on the bottom of that square. The student who began then finds the English. The activity continues until the students get to the last square and say Fin. The students can time how long it takes to go through to the end and try it several times to try to beat their time. There are two variations:
--Cover squares with bingo chip or piece of paper as they are used to make it easier to locate remaining squares
--No covering of squares for more of a challenge.
Students cut up the squares and line them up in order in one long strip placing the Spanish above the English. There are two variations:
--Start with Principio and go to Fin
--Start with Fin and go to Principio
Students write in subjects and verbs in either English or Spanish (sheets 2 and 3) after doing the other activities. They should try to do it without looking back at the slips of paper from sheet 1. They can do this activity together or they can do them individually. This can also be done orally with one student saying the Spanish or English word and writing the answer of the partner (who is not looking at the vocabulary.
This is a great activity for review or for an activity that can be left with a substitute teacher.
