Spanish Learning Games Promote Memory Skills

Play lots of Spanish learning games. The best part about is thatyou can do them over and over – supplying much needed repetition. Plus they can be done with friends promoting conversational skills.

Whether in the classroom or at home these Spanish games for kids are a great way to increase vocabulary.

Here are some of our favorites:

Fishing for Spanish Words

Put out a blue tarp (we used a plastic shower curtain) for the “pond”. The make cutouts of different shapes for vocabulary.

Put a paper clip on each one and put them in the pond. Attach a magnet to string and if possible attach to a stick. Let children fish out the words and they have to say the word when they fish it out.

You can do different themes- foods, classroom objects, animals, families etc.

Guess What’s Missing

Put two objects on the table and as you put each one down the children have to say the name in Spanish. For example, Una manzana – An apple or Una naranja – An orange

Have the children close their eyes. Hide one and have them guess in Spanish which on is hidden.

For the next round add a third object however, point to each one again and have them repeat the name ie una manzana, una naranja , un pan.

Hide one object and continue the game adding a new object each round.
