Practice the preterite and the imperfect with this twist on a traditional classroom activity! The “Cuento al revés” worksheet is structured like reading comprehension questions, but is actually a creative writing activity that also reinforces key grammatical concepts and vocabulary.
Your students will see the correct use of the preterite and the imperfect modeled in the questions, which will support them as they come up with their own creative answers!
This activity has become a class favorite for my students. The questions start out routine and predictable, but they get sillier and stranger as they go! I love to see the surprised expressions on my students’ faces as they encounter the questions that throw a wrench in the stories they are creating!
