Help your students understand how to conjugate and use Stem-Changing Verbs.
This unit introduces 24 commonly used Stem-Changing Spanish verbs. There are variety of lessons to help students learn and use these verbs.
1. Introduction to stem-changing verbs. The stem change only occurs inside the shoe. Therefore, we also refer to these verbs as “Shoe Verbs”.
2. Vocabulary List: Includes 24 common present tense stem-changing verbs.
3. Categorize the Shoe Verbs: Students will categorize all 24 verbs according to their stem change:
Group #1: (e-ie)
Group #2: (e-i)
Group #3: (o-ue) (u-ue)
This includes an extension activity in which students cut out all the verbs and categorize the verbs for more practice.
4. Conjugate the Shoe Verbs: In this exercise the students are given 6 diagrams of 6 different shoes. The students will need to conjugate the verbs indicated using the shoe diagrams. (Includes 2 Practice worksheets: 12 verbs in all.)
5. Fill In the Blanks: Students will conjugate the stem-changing verbs in each sentence.
6. Write the Question: Students will form questions using the stem-changing verbs with the words provided as cues. Then, they will answer the questions.
7. Dialogue: Students will fill in the blanks with the correct stem-changing verbs to complete the dialogue. Then, they will practice the dialogue with a partner.
8. Vocabulary and Grammar Review with Spanish Idiom: In this worksheet students will discover the hidden Spanish idiom by identifying different general vocabulary words from different categories (i.e. body parts, numbers, colors, animals, foods, job titles, family members, and months of the year.) After identifying the words according to their categories, the students will then follow the directions and color them accordingly. If students do not have crayons or colored pencils they can simply cross out the words instead. The blocks that remain will reveal the Spanish idiom “Zapatero a tus zapatos.” In English this means, “Each man after his own trade or stick to what you are good at”. Next, students will discuss the meaning of this idiom with their teacher.
9. The Crazy Shoe Contest: Students will be given an opportunity to be creative. They will choose one shoe verb. They will draw a shoe (any kind of shoe, boot, cowboy boot, rain boot, etc.) Then, they will conjugate the verb they have chosen inside their drawing. You can have a contest in your class to see who created the best shoe verb.
10. ¿Qué quieres hacer? Students will put a check in each box next to the activities they want to do this weekend. Then, they will write a sentence for each one using the grammatical structure “querer + infinitive”. As a follow up activity they will interview their partner about their weekend plans.
Take a look at what some happy buyers had to say about this resource:
“This whole set was super helpful in laying out a nicely scaffolded lesson on stem-changing verbs, starting from basic notes, to quick sorting, to practice. I supplemented with other activities as I went along, but it provided a great outline to get my students where I wanted them to go.”
“Best activity !!! My HS students enjoyed this very much!”
