Students enjoy practicing the Spanish Imperfect and Preterite with this powerpoint activity. It also includes exercises to practice the distinction between the uses of the tenses through adverbs. It is called "Contra el Reloj." On each screen there are subjects and infinitives. Students are given 6 subject/verb pairs and 25-50 seconds to write the correct verb form, either on paper or on a mini white board. When the time is up the sentences disappear and the students stop writing. All of the animation is set to do this, all the teacher has to do is click once to start. After it is done the teacher can click once more and the correct sentences come on the screen. The sample has the timer set to 5 seconds, but the slides in the presentation are set to 25-50 seconds with 6 sentences per slide.
These Contra el Reloj powerpoint activities sell individually for $1.99, or over $27.00 for all 18 powerpoints. I offer them in a bundle at a 50% discount: $12.99.
