Preterite Tense - All Skill Activities
These activities target the Preterite Tense through all four skill areas (listening, reading, writing, speaking). The activities provide a meaningful context through which students can first interpret the Preterite Tense through listening and reading and then produce it themselves with opportunities for both written and oral production.

Listening - Students will listen to 16 statements (teacher script provided) about what different people did either today or yesterday. They must listen for the verb endings to decide whether the action was done "hoy" or "ayer".

Reading - Students will read a short passage (in Spanish) about a party gone wrong. They will then identify all preterite tense verbs within the passage and complete a chart based on the person of each verb. They will also respond to several reading comprehension questions about the events of the party.

Writing - Students will take on the role of several characters of the story and write the answers to questions about the events of the party from that characters point of view.

Speaking - Students will take on the role of either a police officer or party attendee as an interrogation about the events of the party takes place.
