Review verb tenses using the concept of the game MASH (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House). This game has students compete in teams to complete the board of various verb tenses. It uses the present, preterite, imperfect, present perfect, past perfect, future, and conditional tenses.
See directions below:
Draw a swirl, students indicate when to stop, then draw a line to connect the center to the outside to figure out your number.
In the example to the right (shown in actual product), the line crossed through the swirl 3 times (don’t count the starting point). This means that my number would be 3.
This number will indicate which subject you would use. Use a multiple of six to correspond to a subject pronoun if the line crosses more than 6 times. My subject pronouns correspond to the numbers 1-6. (See below)
Yo 1 Nosotros(as) 4
Tú 2 Vosotros(as) 5
Él/Ella/Usted 3 Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes 6
Feel free to switch up your number every round, continue through until you have completed the whole board, or switch numbers once you have completed a conjugation from each tense. To play, you will count using that magic number. Whatever verb you land on, you must conjugate in that tense. If you get the conjugation correct, then you may cross out that verb. Then you continue counting with that same number, conjugate, and cross out the verb. You are trying to complete the whole board first. This game should be completed in teams of 2-3 (to help ensure correct responses are provided). The teams would compete against other teams within the class, and the first team to complete the board would win. I strongly encourage students to not only say the answer, but also write the answer on the board. In this way, the teacher may check for accuracy.
