A great way to discover and practice the conjugation endings for the preterite tense of regular -er and -ir verbs!
Lessons each include printable handouts and a slideshow in PPT and Keynote format. All handouts are modifiable to meet the needs of your own students!
-Inquiry notes: I love this activity to help students discover the patterns of conjugation rather than just taking notes. They read sentences and identify the endings that correspond with different pronouns.
-Guided practice: put those verb endings to use by conjugating verbs
-Conversation practice: students create questions using the preterite tense, then interview a partner.
-Review the conjugation endings
-"Alguna vez" activity: Students answer silly questions about the weird things that they did or did not do at some point in their life (¿Alguna vez comiste caracoles?). They love to learn about each other and laugh at the ridiculous situations.
