I am attempting to put my activities online to have a compilation for future use.
I generally have the students create flashcards in groups of 3. They split the list into 3 parts and each write a third of the list. This is because we usually do flashcard games for review at the end of the month, so there is a lot of vocabulary. Always remind the students to make the writing big and bold if they are going to flash them to each other. For most games that we play, they put Spanish on one side and English on the other. I also tell them to have the most responsible person in their group hold on to all of the cards so they stay together.
Keep Flashcard Game
In this game one student flips the card while the other 2 or 3 in their group try to be the first to correctly say the word. Whoever says the word correctly first keeps the card. When all of the cards have been shown, the person with the most cards wins and becomes the new flipper. The first day that we play they flash the Spanish and have to say the English. The next day or two when we play again they must flash the English and say the Spanish (harder).
If you have any favorite flashcard games, please share them!
