Circle puzzles are a great logic-based, kinesthetic tactile review activity that can work for any grammar or verb topic. Students work in pairs to match clues that build a circle when completed.
This file includes a 20-piece puzzle and instructions for how to use it in class.
This activity reviews five major verb tenses: present, preterite, imperfect, future, and conditional. It is intended for Spanish 4 or 5 where students have already learned all five tenses and need practice distinguishing between them.
Circle puzzles take a little bit of prep - I cut apart all the pieces and put each set in a snack-sized Ziplock bag. But once that's done, you can keep them to use for each class for years to come.
This activity is also available as part of my Five Verb Tense Review Bundle
If you like this idea – a hands-on review activity that you can print once and use for years to come – this activity is also available as part of my Circle Puzzle Bundle
Circle puzzles focus primarily on the ACTFL language comparison and interpretive communication standards.
Going paperless? You can print/laminate a set of puzzles for students to assemble, then have them snap a photo of their completed puzzle to submit electronically.
