Spanish and French Classroom Games

I love using games in my Spanish and French classroom. It’s always fun to spice up language class and get students out of their seats and moving around. Active learning is so much better than sitting and listening to a lecture. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite Spanish (and French) language games to play in the classroom. Here goes . . .
