If you want to do something to celebrate the holiday - Navidad - and you still want to keep up with grammar practice, this is for you!
I wrote a simplified version of the Night Before Christmas with more easily comprehensible vocabulary than the original. It includes 54 preterite and imperfect verbs - regular and irregular - representing a good variety of reasons for using each one.
Students work (in partners?) to circle whether each verb is preterite or imperfect and why is uses that tense. Since it's a familiar story, it should be easier for students to figure out why each tense is used - and more fun!
Includes an answer key as well!
