This is the second of my new student-led learning series
called Figure Out!
This is Figure Out: The Present Subjunctive!
and is aimed toward Spanish 3+ students.
These activities are used to introduce a new verb tense.
In this case, it's the present subjunctive mood.
The concept behind the Figure Out! series is that students will completely teach themselves the new tense including:
1) what the new tense is probably called and what it means
2) how to form the new tense
3) connections/rules regarding forming the new tense (in this case, the indicating phrases and reasons for using the subjunctive mood)
I suggest handing this activity out and explaining to students that they must use the clues within the text (in this case, 18 different quotes within speech bubbles), to figure out when to use the subjunctive mood and how to form it.
The second half of the activity includes forming regular and irregular verbs in the subjunctive mood [irregular meaning verbs with an irregular "yo" form in the present tense]
and practice producing original sentences
with the subjunctive mood.
An answer key is included.
This is a fantastic, interactive way to have students take ownership in their learning and teach themselves the new verb tense.
I promise you that you'll be amazed with how many connections students will be able to make as they read this activity and complete the activities.
