Preterite tense task card set with 48 different cards to get your students up and moving while practicing the preterite tense of regular and irregular verbs. Students will be engaged as they complete various tasks on the included response sheet like conjugating verbs in the preterite tense, filling in the blank with the correct preterite form of the verb in parentheses, writing sentences from prompts given, and answering multiple choice translation questions, and fixing the incorrect sentences. Check out the thumbnails and preview for a sampling of cards/materials included with this set. These cards print well in color or gray-scale!

Included irregular verbs: ser, tener, venir, leer, dormir, jugar, decir, ir, dar, ver, hacer, poner, sacar, almorzar, traer, oír, pescar.

Preterite tense task cards can be used in many different ways!
• Cut up and distribute around classroom (hang up on walls, scatter on desks, even hide for some extra fun). Have students go around with sheet and answer any 30 (or whatever number you want to give them). Makes for great review before a test!
• For advanced learning or to differentiate, when students get to the fill-in-the-blank sentences, they need to write the missing verb AND why the preterite is used with that past tense example (interrupts a continual action, single completed action, two complete actions in a sentence, etc.).
• Use in conjunction with other activities during stations.
• If you have a document camera, you could show students a card and have them write answers on mini whiteboards and hold up, either individually or as a team.
• Extra five minutes left in class you hadn't planned on? Task cards always save the day! Pull out the task card set and use for a quick game, formative assessment, or rapid fire quiz for candy.

The possibilities are endless!

• Task card response sheet
• 48 different task cards that cover regular verbs

Here are some things buyers have said about my task cards:
J.G.-I just did this activity for the first time on Thursday and I am so happy with the way it was received by the students! I allowed the students to use their notes if they wanted to, and only asked them to answer 30 out of the 48 questions in order to cut down on congestion in the room, (which is a constant issue with 32 students!) The students were engaged the entire time. I will definitely be back for some of the other tense cards!

T.H. I absolutely LOVE your task cards! So many uses!!! Thank you!!!!

K.G.- Thanks so much for these cards! I bought them, made them and used them in class today already and it was a huge success. The kids loved the different style of working.

J.L.- My students liked this activity and it was a good test review!

E.M.- This was awesome and was an excellent last review before a review section over present tense in Spanish II.

C.B.- Loved this assignment, it made doing a "regular worksheet" much more fun!!
