La lotería mexicana

For a long time now I’ve had the lotería mexicana in the back of my mind as the focus of a lesson or series of lessons.  One of the IB Language B themes is sports and leisure.  Maybe I could do something with it for that unit of study.  So many great games and sports related to Hispanic culture, so little time!

There is a children’s book called “El juego de la lotería” that could be useful. http://www.amazon.com/Playing-Loteria-El-juego-loteria/dp/0873588819/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325180664&sr=1-1

And links to resources related to lotería to accompany the book, including the sayings that go along with each card https://sites.google.com/site/renecolatolainez/playing-loteria–for-teachers

I just read a great blog post about using a Lotería app for iPad in class at http://creativelanguageclass.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/idea-34-loteria-app-for-spanish-classes/ that also included a link to and online loteria game at http://www.loteria-mexicana.com/es-mx/

    Great idea to weave in the IB curriculum! I taught pre-IB classes back in the day. There will be some great discussion about this. As another blogger/teacher commented, this could be a good lead in to talk about stereotypes. I wonder what an American loteria board would look like??

      Love the stereotypes ideas! My mind is already brainstorming some images for the American version

        I went to a conference session once where each group was assigned a different country. They asked us to make a chart: one side positive stereotypes and one side negative for our country. I felt guilty for writing these horrible thoughts, but then realized there were just as many positives. Then we shared. It was an eye opening conversation.
