One of the most common Latin American games is one called “el cartero" (the postman). This game should only be used for children in mid-level Spanish, as it requires conjugating verbs, although it is quite repetitive and will help children with their pronunciation and listening skills.
Children have to go in a circle and one person is chosen to be “el cartero." The objective of the game is to have everyone scramble for a chair, and the student who is left without a chair becomes the “cartero". The postman must indicate different characteristics such as hair color, and those with that characteristic must get up and scramble for a chair. The postman must switch as well if he does not want to become “el cartero" anymore. The dialogue goes like this:
Cartero : Traigo Carta
I have a letter
Audience: ¿de quién es...?
Cartero: Traigo carta para todos los que tienen pelo negro
I have a letter for all those who have black hair
Traigo carta para todos los que tienen camisa azul
I have a letter for all those who have a blue shirt
Traigo carta para todos los que tienen ojos verdes
I have a letter for all those who have green eyes
The game can continue for a while, so make sure you time your lesson well. Beware to do it for too long, as children tend to get rowdy with this activity. If children are more on a beginning level, you can provide the script and just have them identify colors and objects and simplify the language a bit.
