Poemas del DÃa de San ValentÃn
Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Spanish
Acknowledge the day, but make it GRAMMATICAL!
Students will create four 4-line poems using the grammar you are working on now! (The product is a Word document, so feel free to adjust the prompts to match your textbook.)
For each level there are seven different prompts that suggest grammatical patterns students can use to write their poems. The samples are in Spanish, but can be easily adapted to any language.
The Beginning prompts focus on the present tense of ser, estar, tener, and regular verbs, and on adjectives and agreement.
The Intermediate prompts include preterite, imperfect and the present subjunctive.
The Advanced prompts allow students to use more complex subjunctive constructions in both the present and the past, as well as the present, future, conditional, and past tenses.
You are going to write four poems of four lines each (16 lines in all). Each poem will feature a repetition of a single grammatical pattern. Use a different pattern in each poem. Repetition is the poetry, so you don't have to rhyme unless you want to. You should be melodramatic and extremely romantic in your choice of words. **It might be interesting to add a fifth line (that may or may not be part of the pattern) to be a surprise or to bring closure to your poem.
You should turn in your four poems at the end of class.
Your best poem is to be copied and presented on a decorated valentine to decorate the classroom.
