Product Description
Preterite / Imperfect Trainer
Guides students to a deeper understanding of the relationship between the past tenses.

This product includes a brief summary of the usage of the past tenses, with sample sentences and typical key words that tend to call for one tense or the other.

Using this usage guide and the unlimited number of different Paragraph Outline instruction sheets, students become more and more familiar with narration in the past.

Sample outline:

Imperfect Preterite

motivation 3 actions
personality
physical appearance
emotion
"would always"
location

Give students a topic, a list of vocabulary, or just the outline; they write a logical paragraph using the given elements.

Sample Paragraph:

Cuando era niña me gustaba leer. Leía todos los días. Era un poco tímida, y no me gustaba jugar a los deportes con mis amigos. Era baja, flaca, y algo débil-nunca me escogían para jugar hasta el último momento. Pero estaba contenta. Tenía muchos libros, y me encantaba esconderme para leer. Un día, estaba leyendo detrás del sofá cuando mi mamá me llamó. No le contesté. Me llamaron por una hora, pero yo me quedé escondida hasta terminar el libro. Por fin, salí para comer.

Sample outline #2

Imperfect Preterite

haber 4 actions
weather
physical appearance
time of day
"going to" do something
personality

Sample Paragraph #2:

Hacía sol y había varios niños que jugaban y se reían fuera de la casa. Era mediodía. Yo era la chica más tímida de todos mis amigos. Era baja y delgada. Tenía el pelo rubio y no me gustaba peinarme. Prefería leer que jugar, y ese día iba a empezar a leer un libro nuevo. Mi mamá me vio sentarme a leer. Me mandó afuera para jugar. Salí y jugué por varias horas. Me divertí mucho. ¡Qué sorpresa!

Guided writing helps students become more confident and independent when narrating in the past.
