Celebrate el Cinco de Mayo with your students in a fun and interesting way!
This game is a variation of BINGO with significant modifications.
1. For recognition of the importance of el 5 de Mayo, the activity is titled, "Cinco". This a great introduction for your explanation of the Battle of Puebla and el 5 de Mayo lesson.
2. The numbers used for this activity range from 1-99 as opposed to 1-75 for BINGO which makes this a great opportunity to review the numbers 1-100 with your class and to continue development of their listening comprehension skills.
3. As the title spells C-I-N-C-O, there would appear to be a conflict with having two Cs. However, the first C, pronounced using the "theta" of peninsula Spanish, helps students become accustomed to the distinct accent of Spain. This is especially important in classrooms where the teacher is a non-native speaker or from one of the Latin American countries.
In all, you receive a decorative game card for the students and a pre-sorted list of call numbers so that no BINGO cage or other supplies are needed.
