Spanish stem-changing verbs will be fun and engaging when you use these interactive activities. This resource is not designed to teach the formation of stem-changing verbs. This resource is created to give students the practice they need in order to master the shoe verbs and to keep them in the target language.

Spanish Stem-Changing Verbs or Shoe Verbs
1. Categorizing Shoe Verbs
Students will color the shoe verbs according to the code in the chart. Red (e-ie)/ Blue (e-i)/ Yellow (o-ue) & (o-u).
2. Partner Dictation:
This is a short dialogue in a shoe department. Student #1 is Elena, the saleswoman. Student #2 is Luisa, the shopper. Students will take turns reading their part of the dialogue. The other student must listen and write what he/ she hears. They will take turns until they have finish dictating the entire dialogue. Then, they should check their dictation by looking at each other’s papers and practice reading the dialogue to each other.
Note for the teacher: When making copies, I usually make Student #1’s worksheet on one color (i.e. yellow) and Student #2’s worksheet on a different color (i.e. blue). This helps so much when passing out the papers.
3. Information Gap Calendar:
This is a partner activity in which students are trying to fill in the activities for the month. Student A and Student B receive a calendar, but their calendars have different information. Students will have to ask and answer questions in Spanish. Questions have been provided for the students in the target language. Students can choose to take turns asking questions or have one person ask all the questions, then the other.
4. Cerditos en un Corral (Dots and Boxes)
In this game students will practice conjugating stem-changing verbs in the present tense. Dots and Boxes is a well-known pencil and paper game for two players. It has gone by many other names, including the game of dots, dots and boxes, dot to dot grid, and pigs in a pen. For my Spanish class, I have changed a few of the rules and I have chosen to name the game “Cerditos en un Corral”. Directions are included.
5. Weekend Activities: ¿Qué quieres hacer?
Students will put a check in each box next to the things they would like to do this weekend. Then, they will write a sentence for each one using the grammatical structure “quiero + infinitive”. (It doesn’t necessarily mean they will be able to do these things, but that they would like to do them.) Finally, they will interview their partner using these same questions.
6. Find Someone Who…
Students will get out of their chairs and walk around during this mingle activity. They will ask each other the questions indicated in each of the boxes on the worksheet. For example:
Student A: ¿Piensas limpiar la casa este fin de semana? Student B: Sí, pienso limpiar la casa.
OR Student B: No, no pienso limpiar la casa.
When a student finds someone who has that specific item, they will write that person’s name in the box. The first student with the most signatures wins the game.
7. Llegar a Conocernos
Students will get to know each other better with this fun interactive mingle activity. Also, included is a follow up writing activity.
8. A Set of 42 Conversation Cards: Weekend Activities
Directions for 3 different activities are included with the cards.
