Spanish grammar grid

Spanish grammar grid

Based on an idea I saw on Twitter. Students first classify the words as either noun, adjective or verb and then try to write ten sentences in their book. The sentences must include a combination of noun, adjective and verb and the focus is on accuracy (adjectival agreement, gender of nouns, subject/verb agreement)
