Tabbatha, high school teacher
Review of vocabulary and verb conjugations. Can be used from beginning levels through advanced.
- Vocabulary lists- given to the students in advance or found in the textbooks.
- Divide the class into two teams. You'll want to push desks to the sides.
- Tell the students where first, second, third, and home plates are. The students take turns "at bat".
- The teacher gives them a vocabulary word either in Spanish or the English translation. If they get it right, they advance to first.
You can make this more competitive by giving harder questions more weight - a double or triple. This works well for conjugating verbs.
The team with the most points wins a predetermined prize- candy, 5 points on the test or quiz, or a free homework pass.
I am a third year teacher in a small school district in rural East Texas. I teach Spanish I, II, and III.
