Product Description
This is a short story in which students have to choose between the preterite and imperfect verbs. This may be used as a quiz/formal or informal assessment, homework, classwork or group work.

Students will read the story, and on a separate sheet of paper, write the infinitive form of the verb and meaning in English. They'll circle the appropriate form according to context (preterite or imperfect), and write an explanation stating why they chose the preterite or imperfect.

You can extend this activity by either having students create their own comprehension questions to ask a partner, or have them check their answers with a partner and resolve any differences.

I have included translations for possible unfamiliar vocabulary, which you can remove if you'd like to challenge them. Clear and concise directions are listed for students on handout.
