Verb Tense Shifts Paragraph Revising Worksheet. This grammar worksheet has a paragraph with the verb tenses all mixed up. The story is about a summer canoe trip. The students' job is to rewrite and revise the paragraph, correcting the shifts in tense so the paragraph reads clearly. (This is a common grammar mistake, and this practice will help students recognize the problem.) Then students should also underline all the verbs they found in the paragraph. 2 per page for saving paper copies. Supports common core standards for Language Grade 5* and up. Can be used in centers and then students can self check the key. Great end of the year activity -or the beginning of the year when students are returning from summer vacations.

CCSS.ELA - Literacy L.5.1d Recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in verb tense.
PowerPoint and accompanying workpack designed to encourage pupils to use a variety of complex structures in their spoken and written French. I use it as a revision tool for pupils to use as part of their controlled assessment preparation. Please do let me know if you spot any mistakes.
Print out the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the perfect tense with the cards after reading the infinitive and the subject from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Includes avoir and être verbs and agreement.
Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.
NEW EDITION ADDED. You need to print this in colour in order for it to work. Throw a die, land on a square and conjugate the verb in the correct tense. Get it wrong and go back three spaces. Very easy for you to edit to suit your groups.
