Reading Comprehension el pretérito y el imperfecto

Editable in Google Drive

This packet of 4 student worksheets contains a warm up page to review the imperfect tense, followed by a short three-paragraph reading that includes the preterite and imperfect tenses. The reading is followed by various activities to assess student comprehension as well as proficiency within the two tenses. There is then an open response writing prompt (with a simple proficiency based rubric) to support your students in their practice of the imperfect tense.


ANSWER KEY INCLUDED: There are two separate PDFs included in this .zip file. There is a STUDENT file with only the activities, and there is a TEACHER file that includes the activities as well as the answer key. The separate files are to help you with ease of printing / sharing digitally with your students.


In the attached activities, students are called to:

* briefly review the difference between the preterite and imperfect tenses

* practice conjugating regular imperfect tense verbs

* identify the tense of the verbs in the passage

* determine the infinitive forms of the verbs in the imperfect

* recall irregular imperfect verb forms

* identify key words in determining tense

* explain when/why we use the imperfect tense

This packet is ready to print! No prep needed by you! I hope this saves you some time. This resource is now completely editable in Google Drive. The PDF will provide a link for you to immediately create your own copy in your drive. Enjoy!
