What educators are saying

Thank you for this activity. Students in my Spanish 4 class had a blast doing it on the second day of school.
This was a wonderful way to review preterite and have some interactive discussion about their summer.

    Mi verano Google Slides - digital review of mi verano in the Preterite

    ✅ Includes: 15 Summer Break class starter slides & 15 Break Discussion Slides

    • The first 15 Weekend Chat class starter activity slides would be great to post as the first activity on the 1st day or week. They are separated into reading, speaking & writing practice & could fill up a whole class period. Or they could be used each day during the 1st week of school as a class starter or ice breaker. They would work well as digital homework or sub plans too.
    • The second 15 slides are general questions to click through and discuss or have students write down, type, or discuss answers. You could pick a few to focus on and discuss after each break. For distance learning, you could go through the slides together or maybe have students answer the questions using Flipgrid and respond to each other, or have students go through them in small groups in breakout rooms. 

    The mi verano resources are a great way to start Spanish class the week after your summer break that personalizes content to your students. They focus on the preterite tense talking about specific events of the summer. There is a mix of digital editable Google Slides, as well as print Find Someone Who and Question cards, to be able to do something new each day the first week with repeated preterite review and practice.

    If you are looking for the ultimate source of Summer Break Chat in Spanish class resources using the preterite, this bundle is for you!
