It’s September and if you are back in the classroom teaching Spanish, you know this is the best time to review basic verbs and introduce your students to essential grammar concepts. I’m a big fan of comprehensible input in the classroom, using simple verbs and structures in context to making learning fun. However, there are times when a straightforward verb organizer can be helpful for students. I made these that by taking the common concept of Spanish verb conjugations and putting them into a visually appealing format to help students see patterns in the verb endings.
In this example, students find the regular present tense verbs with AR endings that have been left in the basement of an apartment building and “move” them upstairs with the elevator to the matching translation. Once completed, they can see how verb endings match for the singular and plural pronouns. It’s a simple way to organize verbs that works well for visual learners.
The first slide below shows the blank worksheet. The answer sheet on the second slide is color coded to help students see the endings better. The next two slides use the verbs in student interviews! Dictate or print the worksheet with the questions, have students interview classmates, and then share the answers. The final page can be shown in class to recycle words and practice more speaking.
