El Día de San Valentín or Valentine’s Day is one of those non-cultural celebrations that I love incorporating into Spanish class because it appeals to students and is easy to connect with the class content. Through “El día de San Valentín” you can teach or review colors, sizes, numbers and ever a few phrases related to friendship in Spanish. Here is a fun game I play with my students. This game is perfect for grades fourth and up! This game is available on Teachers Pay Teachers.
Divide the class in pairs. Each pair should have a die and one of the pieces that says “Jugador #1” and “Jugador #2 to keep track of their points. Each player will have a turn rolling the die. The player will have to read the sentence aloud. Every time the player gets “Feliz Día de San Valentín” sentence, he or she will score a point. Whoever gets the most points wins. The players can decided the amount of time they want to play.
The set includes the game, classroom decorations and a set of cards for your students to decorated and give to their friends.
