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/
