There is an activity I use at the beginning of every school year to get students listening and speaking in Spanish in a fun way. It is called the ¿Cómo te llamas? Card Game.
Students quickly and easily learn how to ask, "What is your name?" and answer, "My name is_____."
Here is what I do:
I remind students it is not a race, but some still like to see how fast they can do it! Very funny!
Collect the index cards to reuse at the beginning of your next class.
This activity is a REALLY GOOD ONE. I use it with all ages. I have students who never get tired of it. Try it. I think you will like it!!
¿Cómo te llamas? = koh-moh-teh-yah-mahs
Me llamo = meh yah-moh
Hope you have a great school year!
