Product Description

The different ways to use this resource in your classroom are endless! I have used this activity as a whole, but have also only used parts depending on the specific needs of my students. This activity allows students to practice subject pronoun and verb conjugation agreement for regular, present tense conjugations. I have included "vosotros" conjugations for the -ar, -er, and -ir verbs, but feel free to skip that page if it is not a part of your curriculum. The extension activity offers an opportunity for students to choose 10 of these subject pronoun/verb conjugations to form 10 sentences in the target language. During this extension activity, students can really focus on practicing adding detail to their sentences (With who?, Where?, When?, At what time?, etc.) The extension activity even offers an opportunity for the students to translate these sentences back into English. I have sometimes had students exchange papers and translate their classmates' sentences for a different type of translation activity.

Included in this product:

  • 6 pages of –ar, -er and –ir regular, present tense verb conjugation cards
    • Page 1 - yo form
    • Page 2 – tú form
    • Page 3 – él, ella, usted forms
    • Page 4 – nosotros form
    • Page 5 – vosotros form
    • Page 6 – ellos, ellas, ustedes forms
  • -ar verbs include: bailar, hablar, cantar, nadar
  • -er verbs include: comer, correr, beber, aprender
  • -ir verbs include: vivir, escribir, abrir, recibir
  • A writing extension activity (2 pages)

How to use in the classroom:

  1. Each page has one subject pronoun and 12 different conjugated verbs. Verbs include 4 –ar verbs, 4 –er verbs and 4 –ir verbs.
  2. Cut out each of the cards and cut them in half on the line in the middle..
  3. Shuffle cards and place all together in a pile.
  4. Distribute piles to different groups of students and ask them to match the subject pronouns with the correct verb conjugation endings.
  5. (Extension) Ask students to form sentences with the paired cards.
    1. When I use this in my classroom, students are able to practice their sentence writing skills with the extension activity.
    2. I always encourage my students to add details to their sentences (with who? Where? When? At what time? Why?) This activity is a good way to practice that.
    3. The translation activity of this extension can be modified. If my students understand the translations I may only have them translate every other sentence. If my students are having a more difficult time with the translations, I ask them to translate every sentence.
