The best introduction to the subjunctive is here! This is fun, lighthearted and completely non-threatening. Students will laugh, solve puzzles, sing rock songs, talk about celebrities, play games, and build skills the whole while!
I am so proud of this product, amigos! I think you will find everything you need to keep your students attentive and interested while you teach the subjunctive to them.
Here is what I included:
•A colorful (and silly) animated Power Point that introduces the formation of the subjunctive to students and shows them exactly step-by-step how to conjugate, starting with the YO form in the present tense.
•Cloze notes that students can either fill out while watching the presentation or shortly afterwards.
• Three pages of written practice in the form of puzzles and sentences with fill-in-the-blank conjugation practice.
•One activity sheet based on a punk rock song with more than a dozen instances of the subjunctive.
•One Power Point game with animations to practice conjugations out loud.
• Answer keys for all the written work and the notes.
•One bonus file as thanks for your purchase – a fun activity in which students try to spot truths and lies about various celebrities and express their opinions using “Es posible que” and “Es imposible que” followed by the subjunctive. Consider having them create their own slide to share with the group the next day!
•A teacher guide with standards, rationale, and extension ideas for more classroom fun.
There is enough material here 2-4 classes, depending on how you spread it out. And you can play the game in short bursts any time: before tests, at the end of class, or to start things out with a laugh.
Please Note: This material teaches how to make the subjunctive and gives some examples of it in use. However, this is NOT about how to use the subjunctive. And I do no deal with stem-changers here or the five irregular verbs.
If you like laughing with your students, making things fun and engaging, and you teach in a lighthearted way, then you are going to love this material. (If not, I will dress up like Frida Kahlo and put a monkey on my shoulder!)
