Spanish Preterite (Reg. & Irreg. Verbs) Speaking Activity. Quick Set-Up
El Camino is an engaging and interactive speaking activity that students can do in pairs or small groups. Very quick set-up with no prep needed. Just print out the two pages that make up the game board and students are ready to go.
This El Camino activity includes regular verbs and these Irregular verbs in the preterite:
Students can do this activity in groups of 2 or 3. Each player needs a game piece to move around the board. They can use a bingo chip, a coin or any object of similar size. One die is also needed for the activity.
Print out pages 3 and 4 and put them together to make the game board. All players start at “Cominezo.” Taking turns, each player rolls the die and moves the number of spaces rolled. The object is to land on the numbered boxes in the correct order (1-12). They can move in any direction, but they can’t use the same box twice in a turn. They can share a box with another player. The winner is the first player to land on square #12. The game can be made longer by having players return to “Comienzo” and work toward #12 a second time.
Here is where the speaking practice comes in. Each time a player rolls the die and moves closer to the next number, he/she must say the subject and verb form of the square he/she lands on. They can also be required to say a complete sentences.
The teacher can decide if players must roll the exact number to land on a number square (more challenging). When a player lands on a number square he/she rolls again and begins moving toward the next number. Players can’t go through the number squares, but must navigate around them, unless it is the the number they need to land on.
Lots of fun and you will see how much Spanish students are using throughout the activity.
