With this worksheet, students have to read and analyze (annotate) sentence structures including "ser" with adjectives, "gustar" with verbs, and conjugated -ar verbs. I've written a paragraph in Spanish about Spongebob that uses "ser," "gustar," and conjugated -ar verbs. They will read, annotate by marking the text for certain structures, and translate into English. Part of the directions are:
-Circle the infinitives (have -ar, -er, -ir endings on them) used after “gustar”
-Draw a box around all of the conjugated -ar verbs (have verb endings that correspond to their subjects:
[-o, -as, -a, -amos, -an])
-Highlight (any color) all of the forms of “ser” (soy, eres, es, somos, son). Remember that “ser” means “to be.”
There is also an extension in which students have to use all three sentence types as well as greeting terms in order to create their own dialogue. They can work individually or in pairs to do this. You can have students practice and perform their dialogues if you want to, so the time you take with this can vary widely.
