“Yo Tengo, ¿Quién Tiene?” (or “I Have, Who Has?” in Spanish) is an interactive game that gets students engaged (and up and moving if you so desire). It is great for developing language concepts, vocabulary, taking turns, and listening practice. This game was developed with dual language teachers in mind, as the Spanish numbers are in red.
There are two versions included to practice numbers 0-20 or 0-30, whichever option is best for your students.
So, how do you play?
1. Pass out a card to each child. If you have cards left over, keep passing them out until there are no cards left. (If children have multiple cards, they can spread them out in front to see better. They don’t need to be kept secret.)
2. The child with the Green “GO” sign in the top left corner of their card begins. They will stand up and say “Yo tengo cinco. ¿Quién tiene seis?”
3. The child with 6 will stand up and read their card. “Yo tengo seis. ¿Quién tiene…?”
4. Play continues until the game ends with the “STOP” card. That student answers “Yo tengo … PARE!” to signal the end of the game.
