This is the latest product of my new student-led learning series called Figure Out! This is Figure Out: -ER and -IR Preterite Tense Verbs! and is aimed toward Spanish 2 students.
These activities are used to introduce a new form of the preterite verb tense. In this case, it's -ER and -IR Preterite Tense Verbs. The concept behind the Figure Out! series is that students will completely teach themselves the new tense including:
1) how to form regular -ER and -IR preterite tense verbs
2) how to practice and write sentence with regular -ER and -IR preterite tense verbs
I suggest handing this activity out and explaining to students that they must use the clues within the text (in this case, a letter written to a friend ), to figure out how to form -ER and -IR preterite tense verbs.
The second half of the activity includes writing complete sentences with -ER and -IR preterite tense verbs.
Note: Two versions of the letter are provided - the first has the conjugated -ER and -IR verbs underlined to help students, and the second does NOT have the conjugated -ER and -IR verbs underlined. These two versions will allow for differentiation in your classroom if you have students working at various levels.
An editable Word document and a PDF version are included. An answer key is also 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.
