Fish Race-Teacher gives a word or phrase in English (or Spanish) and each player, when it is his/her turn, says it in Spanish (or English). If the player is correct, then he/she gets to move the fish one wave. First fish to reach the last wave wins.
Great way to build confidence and get them speaking Spanish on the first day! What other teachers are saying: -"Great resource. Gave my beginner students confidence." -"Cannot wait to use this with my 6th grade classes!" -"All my students 3-5th love cognates...thanks for this, it is perfect for my sub plans"
