Review “Juguemos en el bosque”

"Juguemos" probably originated in Spain, and is played all over the Spanish speaking world. Learn the Spanish words by playing short sections of the song, then repeating the words. If this is too difficult for your students, play the song using the audio, then have the students ask the questions in English.

Play the game with “Juguemos en el bosque”

One student pretends to be the wolf and hides. Form a circle with the others and circle around the room. At the end of the song the students ask, “Wolf, are you there?” The wolf makes up answers like, “I’m brushing my teeth,” or, “I’m combing my hair.” When the wolf says, “I’m coming to eat you!” he runs toward the students, trying to catch one, while they try to reach the safety of the “den.” The student who is caught then becomes a wolf too, and the game continues until all the players have been captured.

Denise Tips: In my classroom, we’ve adapted the game so that the wolf has a time limit (seven seconds) to eat (tag) as many students as possible. Each student that is tagged sits down so we can count how many students the wolf ate. Then we choose a new wolf. We keep score and the wolf who tags the most students is the winner. The other adaptation we’ve made is that the “wolf” is only allowed to make up one thing to do before coming to eat the students. This keeps the game moving more quickly.

We also tried playing the game using the same game format as "Old Mother Witch." This worked very well. I learned this game while on a Rotary Group Study exchange to Peru.
