Help your Spanish language learners master the preterite. First, with the class or individually, students fill out a chart with the preterite endings for regular verbs. Next, they translate eight sentences from English to Spanish, using the preterite to conjugate the verbs. The verbs are provided at the end of the sentences and are underlined in the English version. Allow learners to work with a partner or assign this exercise for homework and go over it together the next day.
- Requires learners to translate entire sentences and conjugate the verbs properly
- The included verbs provide a scaffold for translation practice as does the verb endings chart
- No answer key is provided
