Time to Play! El Pañuelito with 2ºC & 2ºD

Last week we played a very fun game with A.C., the English assistant, in 2ºC and 2ºD of primary called "El Pañuelito." We practiced vocabulary from our unit on the solar system. Here's how you play:

  • The class is divided into two teams.
  • Each person has a vocabulary word taped on their shirt. For example "sun" or "Jupiter."
  • Each team has one person with the same word.
  • The teacher stands in the middle of the two teams with a flag.
  • The teacher says one of the vocabulary words.
  • The person from each team with this word must run to be first to get the flag.
  • The first person back to their team's side with the flag earns a point for their team.
  • The first team with 12 points is the winner!
We had so much fun learning about our solar system thanks to this fun game!
