     The following games and activity ideas were, for the most part, obtained from teacher's contributions on the FLTEACH Listserv. Whenever possible I noted the person who contributed the original idea from the listserv. I altered some activities to fit my style, clarified and re-wrote others that were a tad confusing, changed some aspects to be more "politically" correct, and added worksheets and transparency masters to help in setting up and running some games more smoothly. Many were so well written that no editing was necessary and I used them as I found them. In NO WAY do I take credit for the majority of the items on this page. My goal was simply to put them in a format that was clearer and to organize them so that other teachers could benefit from them as I have.
     If you are the author of any of these games/activities/ideas and I have failed to give you credit ... please accept my humble apologies for this accidental oversight. If you e-mail me I would be delighted to give credit where credit is due. If you happen to notice any errors in spelling or grammar, PLEASE e-mail so that I may correct them ASAP.
     To all of those teachers who so generously share with others ... ¡Muchísimas Gracias y Un Abrazo Fuerte!
