For my elementary students, incorporating matching games is a great way to get their excitement levels up and blood flowing throughout a lesson/unit. It also provides great visuals for many common Spanish “tener” expressions. I hope you and your kiddos enjoy it as much as my students and I do!
The matching “tener” cards can be used to play the memory game or passed out to students who then have to find their match. For example, if one student receives the “Tengo hambre” word card, he/she has to find the student who has the card of the lion eating a meal. My students love playing both games, but they especially love walking around with their cards as they search for their match!
