This game of LA SILLA CALIENTE (hot seat!) assesses student knowledge of irregular preterite tense conjugations.

I love this game because all students play, and all students MATTER!! If you've never played before, directions are on the first slide. Please check out the preview to get a better idea!
The presentation provides 30 question slides, with each answer on the slide immediately following the question. Questions progress from easy to medium to difficult.
IRREGULAR Preterite verbs are covered!
1) The first group of questions provides full sentences in Spanish and asks students to identify whether each sentence is in el PRESENTE or el PRETÉRITO.
2) The second group of questions asks students to identify whether given verbs are REGULAR or IRREGULAR in the preterite tense.
3) The third group of questions are Spanish sentences with fill-ins, where students are given the verb but must provide the correct conjugation based on the subject provided in the sentence.
ANSWER KEY PROVIDED: the answers are provided in red during the presentation!
This is my most popular game with my high school students. They beg for it!
