NO prep! Just print and go!
Spanish Present Tense, Imperfect, Preterit, Conditional and Future TENSES: -IR verb GAME! Octopus on Guard! The Octopus is guarding her treasure and students must “pop the bubbles” in the way!
Students pair up and are armed with a marker (or highlighter or colored pencil, etc!). The teacher calls out conjugated verbs in English and the students race each other to find the correct conjugations in Spanish. When they find the correct conjugation, they “pop the bubble” by coloring it in. Whoever finds the correct conjugation first, earns a point. The student with the most points at the end wins!
Another way to play this as a whole class is to use it as a "matamoscas" or "flyswatter" game!
There are SIX game boards included in this packet!
All -IR regular verbs:
present tense (x2)
“Octopus on Guard” is a great review game and motivator. This game can go quickly! It’s a great warm up activity or closer at the end of a lesson.
You can laminate these and use them over and over again throughout the year! Or display on your overhead for a quick game of Matamoscas!
If you’d like it to last a little longer, consider photocopying double-sided and play “rounds.” The best 2 out of 3 rounds might win a fun prize from the teacher (an extra credit point, piece of candy, bookmark, etc.).
