The verb ser is often the first verb introduced to novice Spanish speakers. This powerpoint provides a brief introduction to basic grammar important to the use of ser (what is a verb, infinitives, and conjugation). It also introduces the verb ser, including its conjugations, common uses, and basic phrases that utilize ser. At the end of the powerpoint is a link to a song I use to help students remember the forms of ser.
The presentation is in English. However, I generally click through the presentation while speaking in Spanish and allowing my students to read the English explanations.
I want to point out this presentation is used for direct instruction, and does include grammar explanations. While this may not be 100% communicative (for those of you who adhere to this method), this presentation can be completed in a short time. Then, you can expand upon the verb ser with communicative activities!
This presentation should be easily used with any textbook curriculum, but you can adapt it if necessary!
I have also made guided notes and an exit ticket that accompany this Powerpoint. Obviously, you could use the Powerpoint without this, but guided notes add a bit of ease to grammar!
Here is the link to the guided notes and exit ticket:
