The PPT in PDF format contains the text for the legend. As students read it aloud they insert the verb conjugated on the Preterit or Imperfect. Each slides contains several sentences.
Students work with a partner to decided if they will use the Preterit or Imperfect then write the correct conjugation. Students are called upon and they explain why they chose the verb tense. After each slide there is a key for students to view. I have used colors to color code the tenses as well as indicator phrases. Red is for the Preterit, green is for the Imperfect and blue is for the indicator phrase.
I have also color coded indicator phrases to facilitate comprehension of why the Preterit or Imperfect was used. PPT also contains a pre-reading activity in which students have to explain why there are several versions to legends and the purpose of legends. There are 22 slides.
To accompany this ppt students use several graphic organizes to review the story and practice writing in the target language. Students work with a partner or a group of three. If it's a large class, then they group in groups of four.
To switch things up sometimes I use the Sequence chart instead of the story map:
This legend is spooky so I love using it days before or after Day of the Dead.
This legend is a nice addition to my Ecuador Unit. You may also be interested in
