This no-prep game challenges students to create sentences from subject pronouns and adjectives that they roll on dice (or pull from numbered flashcards)! It covers most of the adjectives from the textbook series Exploraciones, capitulo 1. However, the adjectives used are commonly taught through other textbook sources.
Items needed: Either dice or flashcards numbered 1-6 for groups
Great news! Your students can play up to 8 different games from this activity, based on the lists of provided adjectives! There are also differentiated levels: "facíl" and "difícil" (easy and difficult). The "facíl" sheet requires fewer adjectives to be already memorized upfront; the adjectives are provided in Spanish and students must simply identify the proper subject, conjugate "ser," and modify the adjective to build a simple sentence. The "difícil" sheet requires students to translate all adjectives from English to Spanish before building sentences. It steps up the game just a bit.
Concepts reviewed or reinforced through this game:
-Subject pronouns (yo, tú, él and ella, ellos and ellas, nosotros and nosotras, vosotros)
-Conjugating the verb "ser" for multiple subject pronouns
Adjectives include (from Exploraciones series, capitulo 1): Aburrido(a), Guapo(a), Amable, Antipático(a), Atlético(a), Bueno(a), Interesante, Optimista\, Paciente, Cariñoso(a), Cómico(a). Rebelde, Famoso(a), Sociable, Inteligente, Trabajador(a), Pequeño(a), Joven, antonyms of these, and more--double this list size of adjectives! Many are English cognates, which will make understanding easy for students who may not have encountered many words before.
Great as reinforcement, review, or an easy Spanish sub plan requiring little or absolutely no prep.
