There are so many fun, interactive ways to reinforce la ropa when teaching Spanish to children! Fashion shows, Loteria, Yo Veo, are just a few of the classics that the Bilingual Fun kids participate in during La Ropa unit. Guessing games are a favorite because they allow students to practice identifying vocabulary and they encourage language production and fluency.
Here are 2 simple, fun guessing game for kids learning Spanish:
What is Missing?
Place a variety of clothing items on a table. Review and reinforce the words. Have kids close their eyes and remove an item. They must guess the missing item correctly in Spanish. Vary the difficulty level, by taking away various items, allowing the activity to be student led, ask questions about the color, size, etc. This is a very fun way to practice a multitude of vocabulary and to get the kids speaking Spanish!
Simply use flashcards, or printed clothing pictures in a pocket chart, and hide a small sticker or item behind one. We used a small flower sticker for this activity. There are many ways to make this interactive, by choral repetition of the question, then allowing kids to take turns guessing a vocabulary word in Spanish. The kids love to make a big deal saying ‘ no está o si está aqui! You can vary this and repeat it several times to practice fluency and listening comprehension.
