This 13 slide Powerpoint presentation is based on a couple of acronyms I have created to simplify determining which past tense is appropriate to use between imperfect and passe compose. This is an organizer for teaching the concepts, two print ready activities are included including a cut (with actual scissors) and paste (with real glue) activity and one short printable or on-screen activity. Both activities have answer keys. Everyone I have ever shared this idea with has asked for a copy. I hope it simplifies this process for others like it has for me. This should be all ready to print one minute and use the next!
