This packet is an all inclusive resource for the preterit and the imperfect in Spanish. All notes are filled in already, but feel free to delete or edit the packet to make it your own. Note: this is not a practice packet, this is a notes/reference packet. The packet includes:
a. The regular endings for "ar", "er", and "ir" verbs in the preterit
b. The irregular preterit verb endings and the stems that use them, including examples and translations
c. All forms of the really weird preterit verbs ir & ser, dar, decir, ver, and traer
d.Preterit verbs ending in "car", "gar", and "zar"- all forms and examples
e. Preterit verbs ending in "ucir"
f. The regular "ar", "er", and "ir" imperfect verb endings
g. The three irregular imperfect verbs "ser", "ir", and "ver"
h. An explanation page on when to use the preterit and imperfect and two acronyms to help remember the usage
i. A page of "trigger words" for both preterit and imperfect and some examples of preterit and imperfect sentences.
I hope you enjoy using this reference packet in class. It has helped me immensely to teach the preterit and imperfect at the same time through the use of this packet. I give the students the overall big picture first, then I practice the forms little by little.
