SPANISH GRAMMAR SPANISH CONJUGATION SPANISH -AR VERBS PRESENT TENSE CONJUGATION WORKBOOK. The workbook has 25 high-frequency regular and irregular Spanish -AR verbs, with 150 quick conjugations and 3 differentiated conjugation challenges. The focus is on conjugating the verbs correctly, rather than on correct usage.
I always give my students an answer key for this kind of workbook - they like to learn independently, and they can both self and peer assess with the key - and it also gives them another opportunity to practice conjugating the verbs. The quick recall conjugations are really popular with my students, and we use them in a range of learning contexts, such as practice during the introductory phase, free-choice activity in class time, home learning or sub lessons.
I structure the workbooks like this:
* Two alphabetical verb reference lists: Spanish-English and English-Spanish, useful for longer-term reference too
* Three differentiated conjugation challenges, each with 50 individual conjugations:
Conjugation Challenge 1: each verb conjugated in Spanish across a range of pronouns, with students writing the corresponding English verb conjugation.
Conjugation Challenge 2: gives the infinitive of each verb in Spanish, specifying the target pronoun. Students write the corresponding verb conjugation in Spanish.
Conjugation Challenge 3: students write the corresponding Spanish verb conjugation, and its infinitive, from a Spanish prompt.
I use the Notes and Next Steps template to encourage my students to reflect on their progress - we revisit the conjugations, and the Notes and Next Steps, regularly - sometimes students haven't quite embedded learning before it's time to move on, so revisiting for 10-minute 'chunks' is really popular with them. The answer key has six pages and is in booklet format. Answer keys are essential for this kind of learning activity, and my students prefer to work and learn independently, assessing their own progress, either individually, in pairs or in small groups.
¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y BUEN APRENDIZAJE!
