This is the tenth of my new student-led learning series
called Figure Out!
This is Figure Out: Present Progressive!
and is aimed toward Spanish 1 or 2 students.
These activities are used to introduce a new verb tense.
In this case, it's the present progressive.
The concept behind the Figure Out! series is that students will completely teach themselves the new tense including:
1) how to form the present progressive and what it means
2) how to practice and write sentence with the present progressive
Note: The vocabulary used within this activity is common daily activities like studying, reading, and singing.
I suggest handing this activity out and explaining to students that they must use the clues within the text (in this case, speech bubbles), to figure out how to form the new verb tense.
The second half of the activity includes writing complete sentences with the present progressive.
Note: Two versions of the activity are provided
- the first has the present progressive verbs underlined to help students, and the second does NOT have the present progressive verbs underlined. These two versions will allow for differentiation in your classroom
if you have students working at various levels.
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.
