This LOTERÍA game is unlike anything you will buy in a catalog! Instead of hearing isolated words, the teacher reads sentences to students as they search for pictorial representations of the sentence on their LOTERÍA boards. This is a great way to turn a traditional vocabulary game into an input-rich activity.

This game features fun, mythical creatures and tener expressions - perfect to follow Somos 1 Unit 10 or in any unit that includes these common expressions.

Sample sentences:

  • El unicornio tiene sueño.
  • La sirena tiene frío.
  • El ogro dice: «Ten cuidado».

Tener expressions:

  • tiene calor
  • tiene frío
  • tiene sueño
  • tiene razón
  • tiene suerte
  • ¡Ten cuidado!
  • tiene hambre
  • tiene 15 años
  • tiene miedo de

40 LOTERÍA boards, 45 sentence cards, and student keys are included for each set, and it includes resources to play either in a traditional classroom space, with printable boards, or virtually with digital/paperless boards.


  • We really enjoyed playing Bingo with this resource! Some of my students were absent -testing for other classes-, and they didn't want to do anything until we started playing! They didn't want to stop when the bell rang.
