Fun For Spanish Teachers

Game: Un Partido de Fútbol

Monday, February 25, 2013
In preparation for this game you will need felt, pictures of soccer balls, pictures of famous soccer players from different Spanish-speaking countries, and a glue gun to put the felt pieces together.

Once the game is all put together, get ready to play it with students. The idea is to simulate a soccer game in class. Divide the class into two groups and assign a fútbol player to each time. Before playing the game introduce each famous player, and use this opportunity to show their countries of origin on a map and also the names of their teams.

The rules of the game are very simple. Each group will get set on the side of the "field" (cancha) that corresponds to their players. Invite one volunteer from each group to come to the middle. You can use flash cards or a bag filled with objects to represent vocabulary that you have previously explored in class. Show a card or object and ask a question related to it. For example: "¿Qué es? or ¿De qué color es la vaca?"
Whoever answers first will mark a "gol" for his//her team. Invite the class to shout together goooooool!". If they both answer at the same time or the game ends in a tie (empate), then they will have to go into overtime, referred to as "penaltis," which in the case of this game means they will get a another turn. To keep track of their scores, I place pictures of a soccer ball on their side of the field each time they get a goal.

Volunteer with Libros Para Pueblos in Oaxaca, Mexico

Saturday, February 9, 2013
The following is a guest post by Suzi Leonard,  Libros Para Pueblos.
Libros Para Pueblos, a seriously nonprofit organization in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, commits itself to improving futures--one child through one book at a time.

Because we believe volunteers can change the world, in March 2013, during Semana Santa (the week prior to Easter) we are opening a few of our 70 library doors in remote villages, to six enthusiastic, creative volunteers, who will work with librarians to attract young readers into a new and thrilling written world, using nature searches, song, dance, puppetry, readings, all tied to library books each child may check out and take home to share with their families.

Volunteers arrive Saturday, March 23, and from touchdown in Oaxaca to departure on March 31, the $1500 participation fee covers all expenses--hotel, meals, transportation, museums, artisan visits, etc.  (Airfares to and from Oaxaca, not included.)

The first four days will be dedicated to the librarians and the children.  The last four to soaking in the color, culture, and vibrancy of Oaxaca during its pageantry of Easter.
