Spanish I: Verb Game

This assignment is due Friday, May 13.

Create a game board using the verb list at the bottom of this post.

  1. The front of the Post-It note should have the Spanish verb form, written in colored pencil. The back of the Post-It note should have the English definition. For example: TENGO on the front, I HAVE on the back. Be sure to use colored pencil, as marker will bleed through. Make the words as large as possible while still fitting on the Post-It.
  2. Arrange the Post-Its to form a game board. Think about favorite childhood games such as CandyLand, Sorry or Chutes and Ladders.
  3. On the poster board underneath each Post-It, write a point value between 1 and 5. Also include bonus and penalty squares such as “Go back 2 spaces” or “Lose a Turn”. You may also include secret passages or bridges for landing on a certain square.
  4. The Post-Its should be decorated on the front with drawings or designs and the game board should also be decorated.

Your completed game board should have 102 verbs in all. For third person (él, ella, Ud.) and (ellos/ellas/Uds.) choose one of the three pronouns for each Post-It. Be sure to represent all 3 choices in your game.  For example, “Ella es” on the front, “She is” on the back.  Or “él viene” on the front, “he comes” on the back.

Make sure everyone in the group participates in each phase of the game creation. Divide up the verbs so that everyone writes an equal or nearly equal number of post-its. Everyone should help put the post-its onto the game board and decide on rules, point values, and decorations.
