This is a set of notes used in conjunction with Product listed "'Fui' - Preterite Yo Form Introduction - NOTES".
This presentation begins with a warmup using "yo" form of regular verbs. This allows students to tap into their prior knowledge, either individually or with a partner.
The presentation continues with teacher modeling of "ser" in the preterite "yo" form. My students, in the past, have been very entertained by my shoddy photoshop job and the humorous photos. "I went to the pool"; "I went to the mall"; etc.
The presentation leads into student practice as a class; students will see the questions on the PowerPoint as well as in their notes (if you chose to purchase the accompanying notes document). They can write their answers to notes and take notes on the answers of other students.
The presentation ends with a "tarea" page - you should adjust this to fit your own class needs and times. For the purposes of this document, I gave hypothetical homework that I had used in the past. Students had time to work on it in class and finish at home if they ran out of time.
This PowerPoint allows students to generate meaning based upon your own presentation of where you went in the past (based upon the photos in the PowerPoint). There is also a section for student response - you can choose to go back and forth between slides until you can guarantee all students understand. I like to flip back and forth between student answers and my own answers, too. I found this presentation to be particularly effective for teaching the preterite "yo" form of "ser", which was difficult for my students to grasp.
This PowerPoint has a photo of me in each image, which you may choose to swap out with a photo of yourself. This can be used independently of the "NOTES" PowerPoint; however, they work directly in conjunction with one another.
While it took considerable time to create the images you see here, it will be a very quick swap to change out my photo for yours.
This "Notes" PowerPoint includes the captions for each of the photos in the PowerPoint presentation. With the added notes once it's printed in handouts of 3 slides per page, students can add to notes with notes you give in class, as well as add prior knowledge, hypotheses, group work, etc.
This presentation allows students to form the knowledge on their own, which brain research shows commits the grammar rules to memory better.
