I always play 'Go Fish
'. I use my part-time jobs flashcards and have students ask, 'Do you have a boy who/that works at a gas station? You can also do it it with places around town, 'Do you have a place where you can buy stamps?
I also play board games
using character cards
. I lay out 8 or so character cards. The students roll the dice. If they get a six, they have to make six sentences (correctly if you want to make it more difficult.) "The girl that is good at Spanish has been to London two times." "The boy that wants to to be a scientist is 17." ... Then the move six places along the board game. First student to the end is the winner.
