What educators are saying

My students thoroughly enjoyed doing this project. They can up with some pretty great stories as well. Loved this activity. I had them present their criatura to the class. Thanks!
This was a fantastic little activity for demonstrating the use and comprehension of imperfect tense verbs.

This product contains 10 readings in Spanish that use high frequency verbs conjugated almost entirely in the imperfect tense. Each reading describes a strange, imaginary creature that lived long ago. Each reading is printed on a worksheet with a 'Draw 1-2-3' activity (adapted from the Latin Best Practices blog). Students read the description, illustrate it, add two speech bubbles in Spanish to the illustration, and summarize their illustration with 3 sentences in English.

This set of readings is a great way to expose your students to the imperfect tense. The most commonly used verbs in the readings include tenía, comía, bebía, vivía, era, estaba, le gustaba, estaba, había and quería. Consider using them as Fast Finisher activities, Homework, at a reading Station, as Sub plan materials...or anything else your heart desires!
