Bean Bag Toss

Objective: to reinforce listening comprehension, color and command recognition, and to encourage fluency.

  • Use colored bean bags or number bean bags.
  • If you do not have bean bags, use colored balls.
  • Set a small basket or bucket in the middle of the circle.
  • Kids all stand up and you tell them “ Escucha-  listen!
  • Explain the command  “ Tira- throw!”
  • If you are reinforcing colors, say ‘ tira azul!. Only kids holding blue will throw the bean bag.
  • Continue this until everyone has a turn.
  • Then have children switch colors.
  • It is fun when they have 2 different colors in their hands so that they really have to listen and identify colors or numbers.
