Materials Required: two handmade printouts, crayons/markers, scissors, index cards
Activity Time: 30-45 minutes
Concepts Taught: use me gusta, learn words of things they like

The first sheet would be a blank bingo card drawn on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. The second would be small pictures of things they might like I suggest 20), each picture repeated 5 times. Under each item would be the spanish word for it, with a blank line under that.

Get the students in small groups of 3-5.

At the top of the bingo card paper, you might want to put some blanks for them to fill in to also remind them of other things, such as, "Me llamo ______________ (they fill in their name); Yo tengo ___________________ anos (I am ____ years old). But above the bingo card is written: ME GUSTA(N):

The groups need to cooperatively fill in the blanks below the spanish words in english. For example, you might have a picture of a car (duplicted 5 times) with "coche" under it. On the blank like below that they need to write "car."

They then can cut out the things they like and paste them below the B-I-N-G-O letters. They can only NOT repeat the same picture twice in one column. Thus, they have made their own Bingo card.

You will need to make up small pieces with B+ each picture on it, then I+ each picture and so on until you have a drawing piece of each possible combination.

Then play Bingo as normal. The winning student calls out "La loteria" instead of Bingo. They have to go through their winning items saying, "me gusta or me gustan" and each item they have.

Thus you have used me gusta/n, learned new vocab words, and made a fun art activity all at the same time.
