5 Student-approved
Classroom Games to
Learn Spanish
by www.SpeakingLatino.com
1. Circumlocution
Game (Objective:
Vocabulary)
1. Have students partner up or form
groups of 3-4
2. Place a topic up on the board (as
general as nouns/adjectives, or as
specific as female celebrities)
3. Once the topic is revealed, one or
two people in each group must turn
their backs to the board
4. At this point half of the class can see
the board; display the magic words
(4-5)
5. Giving a 2-3 minute time-limit, have
the students who can see the board
explain to the students who can’t
see the board what the topic is,
without using the actual word.
2. Globo or any other fun word you want to use
(Objective: Answering questions about
Spanish vocabulary, grammar, culture,
etc.)
1. Divide the class into two parts
2. Students hit the volleyball across the room,
against the walls, etc.
3. The rules are no spiking (hard hits) and don’t hit
the floor or the ceiling. (If a student spikes, come
up with a consequence because this may lead to
hurt people and/or feelings.)
4. If the ball hits the ground or ceiling then student
gets a question (vocabulary, grammar, culture or a
variety).
5. You can decide on your points, but vary it from
time to time. It keeps them on their toes.
3. Lápices
(Objective: Spanish Verbs Conjugation)
A wonderful way to make conjugation feel like a game
rather than a chore.
1. Come up with a set of verbs that the students need to practice
2. Split the students into groups of 3 or 4.
3. In each group, the only materials needed are 1 writing utensil, a piece of
paper per person, and a die
4. Choose a magic number. (Change the number each time you play)
5. Students will need to roll the die first to decide who goes first. They must
roll the magic number! As they are rolling, display your list of verbs.
6. Whoever wins the roll takes the writing utensil and starts conjugating in
any order. The other 2-3 students will keep rolling.
7. When someone rolls the magic number, they are able to grab the writing
utensil and start conjugating on their own paper.
8. The “winners” are all of the students because they are practicing
Spanish, but if they MUST have an actual winner, the students with the
most correct conjugations are deemed los ganadores.
4. Chispita
(Objective: Spelling)
This is one of the best spelling games to learn Spanish. If you have heard of the
English game Sparkle (chispita in Spanish), this is the same thing, just in
Spanish.
1. Students sit on their desks. The teacher gives a word in English, and the
students spell the word letter by letter.
2. Have them include articles, accents, tildes, adjective agreement, etc.
3. For accents, have the students say “acento” after the accented letter. Once
the word is completed, the next student must say “chispita”.
4. The student after the chispita must sit down. The last person sitting on their
desk is el rey/la reina de chispita!
The students need to be vigilant because if someone
else grabs a spoon because of their complete set,
the rest of the group can then grab a spoon to be
safe, even if they have not completed their set. The
student without a spoon isn’t “out” because they still
need to practice, right?

5 Student-approved Classroom Games to Learn Spanish

  • 1. 5 Student-approved Classroom Games to Learn Spanish by www.SpeakingLatino.com
  • 2. 1. Circumlocution Game (Objective: Vocabulary) 1. Have students partner up or form groups of 3-4 2. Place a topic up on the board (as general as nouns/adjectives, or as specific as female celebrities) 3. Once the topic is revealed, one or two people in each group must turn their backs to the board 4. At this point half of the class can see the board; display the magic words (4-5) 5. Giving a 2-3 minute time-limit, have the students who can see the board explain to the students who can’t see the board what the topic is, without using the actual word.
  • 3. 2. Globo or any other fun word you want to use (Objective: Answering questions about Spanish vocabulary, grammar, culture, etc.) 1. Divide the class into two parts 2. Students hit the volleyball across the room, against the walls, etc. 3. The rules are no spiking (hard hits) and don’t hit the floor or the ceiling. (If a student spikes, come up with a consequence because this may lead to hurt people and/or feelings.) 4. If the ball hits the ground or ceiling then student gets a question (vocabulary, grammar, culture or a variety). 5. You can decide on your points, but vary it from time to time. It keeps them on their toes.
  • 4. 3. Lápices (Objective: Spanish Verbs Conjugation) A wonderful way to make conjugation feel like a game rather than a chore. 1. Come up with a set of verbs that the students need to practice 2. Split the students into groups of 3 or 4. 3. In each group, the only materials needed are 1 writing utensil, a piece of paper per person, and a die 4. Choose a magic number. (Change the number each time you play) 5. Students will need to roll the die first to decide who goes first. They must roll the magic number! As they are rolling, display your list of verbs. 6. Whoever wins the roll takes the writing utensil and starts conjugating in any order. The other 2-3 students will keep rolling. 7. When someone rolls the magic number, they are able to grab the writing utensil and start conjugating on their own paper. 8. The “winners” are all of the students because they are practicing Spanish, but if they MUST have an actual winner, the students with the most correct conjugations are deemed los ganadores.
  • 5. 4. Chispita (Objective: Spelling) This is one of the best spelling games to learn Spanish. If you have heard of the English game Sparkle (chispita in Spanish), this is the same thing, just in Spanish. 1. Students sit on their desks. The teacher gives a word in English, and the students spell the word letter by letter. 2. Have them include articles, accents, tildes, adjective agreement, etc. 3. For accents, have the students say “acento” after the accented letter. Once the word is completed, the next student must say “chispita”. 4. The student after the chispita must sit down. The last person sitting on their desk is el rey/la reina de chispita!
