Foreign Language Verb Form or Vocabulary Card Game-New Twist on Memory

This is a fun and interactive  activity that students play in a group of 2, 3 or 4. It is an inventive twist on classic memory.  I call it “The Games Goes On.”  You’ll see why.  I typically do this with 20 pairs (40 cards total).

Foreign (World) Language Verb Form or Vocabulary Card Game-Updated Memory (French, Spanish) wlteacher.wordpress.com-Separate cards into two piles, picture cards and word cards (or subject/infinitive and verb form cards). On one side of the board, place the picture cards (or subject/infinitive and verb form cards) face down, one in each box, so that the numbers are covered.  The remaining cards go face-down in a pile on the “cards” box.

-On the other side of the board, place the word cards (or verb form cards) face down, one in each box, so that the numbers are covered.  The remaining cards go face-down on the in a pile on the “cards” box.

-Each player picks up two cards, one from each side of the board.  If the cards match the player keeps them and adds up the points that were under the two cards and keeps a running total of points throughout the game. For speaking practice the player should say the word (or verb form) or use it in a sentence. If the cards don’t match they are returned to their spots and play continues with the next player.

Foreign Language Verb Form or Vocabulary Card Game-New Twist on Memory (French, Spanish, World Language)-When a player gets a match he takes one card from each pile in the middle of the board and puts them (without looking at them) on the empty spaces and has an additional turn. This is the reason for the game being called “The Game Goes On”. This continues until the cards run out. Be sure to keep the words on one side of the board and the pictures on the other. The player with the most points after all the cards have been used wins.
