Class time and supplies needed: 1 period (45-60 minutes), prior knowledge of the verb tense being studied, notes, books, and an imagination.
NOTE: This is in English, but is set up for a Spanish class. It can be edited to work in ANY foreign language course.
Use this activity to reinforce verbs for any grammar unit (regular present tense, reflexive, preterit, subjunctive, etc.) The download for this activity focuses on the irregular preterite tense, but can be easily edited in Word to suit your current grammar unit of study.
Students will work in groups of 3-4, and will prepare an "audition" for a TV Reality show centered around Spanish verbs. It's a corny activity, but it gets the students moving and having some fun, while practicing their foreign language speaking and conjugation skills.
The groups present to the class, I decide a "winner," and a prize is involved for good work. All receive participation credit for being involved and active with their groups.
Edit the handout attached to suit your needs. It's in Word, for easy editing.
