This activity worksheet aligns with, but is not only for Realidades Tema 8A. I usually use this a few days into the unit, but before the preterite.
Students should be familiar with travel vocabulary.
The narrative is in the preterite. I have students identify (circle, highlight or underline) all of the verbs "even though they look different." Then, students write them down and I ask them to make connections: What is different about the ending? What do you think it means? And then they themselves begin to formulate the endings instead of it being "taught" to them.
There are also 2 questions on Lladró and Flamenco, and the information they provide may be in English.
On the back, students need to demonstrate that they understand the content of the narrative by sketching 8 panels. This is a great alternative way to check for reading comprehension.
I have used this as an in-class opportunity as an introduction to the preterite as well as a homework assignment.
Thanks for looking and make sure to check out my other Realidades 1 and 2 materials.
