Dominoes Verb Practice: El pretérito y el imperfecto
Engage your students in a creative activity for practicing or reviewing past tense verbs: the old-fashioned game of dominoes…reimagined. This resource allows students to practice both the imperfecto and pretérito. The dominoes of the set have students identify verbs in the pretérito versus the imperfecto as well as their uses, match verbs with their meanings, or match similar verbs. The dominoes include:

• Regular preterit: –ar, -er, and –ir verbs
• Preterit verbs with an irregular stem: Andar, estar, tener, caber, haber, poder, poner, saber, hacer, querer, and venir
• Irregular preterit verbs: ser, ir, dar, and hacer
• Regular imperfect: –ar, -er, and –ir verbs
• Irregular imperfect verbs: ser, ir, and ver
• Verb meanings
• Uses of the preterit vs. imperfect, specifically “a completed action,” “setting the scene,” “a continuous action in the past,” and “used to (habitual action in the past)”

The verbs included are as follows:
andar, caber, comer, dar, estar, haber, hablar, hacer, ir, poder, poner, querer, recibir, saber, ser, tener, venir, ver
