Practice the present tense with this twist on a traditional classroom activity! These “Cuento al revés” worksheets are structured like reading comprehension questions, but are actually a creative writing activity that also reinforces key grammatical concepts and vocabulary.
Your students will see the correct use of the present tense modeled in the questions, which will support them as they come up with their own creative answers!
These "cuentos al revés" are appropriate for novice-level students. The questions stick to vocabulary and grammar that is typically introduced in the first semester of Spanish class, so that your students can enjoy this activity even as beginners! I have included 2 versions of each worksheet, one with directions in Spanish and one with directions in English, so you can pick the level that works best in your classroom.
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!
