This game is great for expressive language skills, but you can also use it to target categories, associations, describing, articulation, word matching, phonological awareness skills, synonyms, antonyms, conversation skills, turn taking, teaching Spanish Vocabulary …the list is pretty endless. Great for bilingual Speech Therapy, Spanish ELL, learning Spanish or for the bilingual classroom too. Have fun!
Included in this pack are:
27 Call Words with both English and Spanish term
5 Spanish Lingo Boards
1 Blank board
Directions in English
Each student takes a turn picking out a word. They must answer the question “¿Qué relación hay entre _____ y el Día de los Enamerados?” (“What does _____ have to do with Valentine’s Day? How are they related?”). The student’s answer must be in a complete sentence and must have the call word and “Love,” “Valentine” or “Valentine’s Day” in the answer. “¿Qué relación hay entre Cielo y el Día de los Enamerados?” Cielo esta uno diminitivo por las personas que son amamos. (Ex: “What does Darling have to do with Valentine’s Day?” Darling is a nickname for our Valentine, or the ones we love.) When the student answers correctly, all students with that call word on their board can cover that word with a marker, chip, animal cracker, skittles, etc…. If the answer is incorrect, or not in sentence form, another student may have a turn to answer that question. The student who covers 5 in a row first (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) wins. Of course you can play Blackout by covering all the words, or a shorter version by declaring that the first person to cover any 5 words on the board is the winner.
Variations: You can play Reverse Lingo. Give each of your students 5 (or 10 or however many you decide) markers, chips or treats to randomly place on their game boards. They cannot use the Free Space for this game. If they have a call word covered, they can uncover it. The first student to uncover their selected words, wins. Sometimes my time with my therapy groups is very short. I have shortened this game by declaring the winner to be the first person to cover 3 words or 5 words.
This game can also be found in my literacy unit for Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink
