Bananagrams in Spanish is great for native speakers, but there are also fun variations that you can play with language learners of any level. Below you will find a few of the ways you can use this fun Spanish game with kids learning the language.
Ways to use this Spanish game with language learners
- Play with the pile face up, so players can draw letters that help them.
- Work together to form words instead of playing a competitive game.
- Play that the first person to make 5 words wins.
- Play that the words do not have to connect.
- Choose a winning word to make. Start with 7 tiles. Alternate drawing letters, always discarding after you draw. The first to make the word wins.
- Make words for things you can see in the room. They do not have to connect. Place the tiles face up and draw at will. The first to make 3 or 5 words wins.
- Say words for kids to spell. Let them tell you words and spell them.
- Play ¿Qué palabra es? Make a word and leave one letter (or two) face down. The other player guesses the word.
