My students love this easy way to remember the uses for preterite and imperfect. These can easily be used as posters or as handouts.
The imperfect mnemonic covers descriptions, repetition, ongoing actions, setting the stage, weather, emotions, age and telling time. There is an example for each. The preterite covers interruptions, completed actions, end & beginning of past actions, specific times/dates. There are two examples for each.
