Games for Spanish Class
You can adapt Spanish Bingo, or lotería, to any theme. It is one of the most versatile games for Spanish class! As students play, they practice vocabulary, listening comprehension and reading. If you let them do the calling, it can also be a speaking activity.
The traditional lotería is also a wonderful cultural activity. Learn more about Spanish Bingo including the traditional cards and sentences that callers use.
I often have students write the sentences that I am going to use as examples for the words. You can do it in small groups and give each group some of the vocabulary words. It works well, and they love hearing their sentences read as I call the words.
Students can create their own cards by writing the words into a grid to random order. You can also use Spanish bingo generators online, or find games like the free printable Spanish bingo game for Valentine’s Day that I’m sharing below.
