Ready to print, copy, and use to help students understand how to conjugate verbs in the preterite and imperfect tenses! Tons of practice!
This crossword puzzle is fantastic practice for students of conjugating verbs in both the preterite and imperfect tenses. Before students can learn the differences in usage for the preterite and imperfect tenses, it is important that they are conjugating the two past tenses correctly and comfortably. Crossword puzzles are a great way for students to self-assess their understanding of how to conjugate. If their answer doesn't fit in the boxes, it must need tweaking! Directions for this crossword are as follows:
Directions: Conjugate the given verb for the subject and past tense in parentheses. Do not worry about accents matching up in the puzzle.
Modelo: hablar (yo-imperfect) = hablaba
*hablaba would go in the puzzle*
This puzzle has 73 different verb, subject, and past tense combinations
for students to conjugate. That is a TON of conjugation practice! That also means this crossword puzzle could also work great as a sub plan because it will keep your students engaged AND take most, if not all, of the class period.
Included in the puzzle are regular -AR, -ER, and -IR verbs in both the preterite and the imperfect, the commonly used irregular preterite verbs ir, ser, tener, poder, and estar, and the three irregular imperfect verbs- ser, ir, and ver.
