Imperfect Subjunctive Powerpoint

Imperfect Subjunctive Powerpoint

This is the Powerpoint I use to teach my students the Imperfect Subjunctive. This Powerpoint assumes that they have already learned the Present Subjunctive. I use WEDDING for my Subjunctive triggers. Since this is a Powerpoint file it could be easily modified for the WEIRDOs out there. (a little Spanish teacher joke) :) There are 14 slides with 3 interactive ¡Practiquemos! slides to allow students to check their comprehension.

Spanish Storyboard

Spanish Storyboard

This is the storyboard template that I use for my Spanish classes when we read different TPRS novels such as ¿Dónde Está Eduardo?, Rebeldes de Tejas, Esperanza, Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha, La Hija del Sastre, Guerra Sucia, etc. This storyboard template is blank, so it could be used for whatever novel you use. The template asks students to write their name, the book, the chapter, who, when, and where in Spanish. I sometimes use it as a worksheet and sometimes I use it as an assessment. It works great for both.

Por vs. Para Graphic

Por vs. Para Graphic

I developed this graphic to help my students conceptualize Por vs. Para. This graphic illustrates the transient nature of Por while showing Para as more of an end point. On page 2 I have written color coded sentences that illustrate the explanations on the graphic. The sentences are exactly alike except for the word Por or Para. There is also an explanation of what is being said in parentheses.

"Si El Norte Fuera El Sur," Immigration, Imperfect Subjunctive

"Si El Norte Fuera El Sur," Immigration, Imperfect Subjunctive

This is an activity that I developed for my Spanish 4 students. In our Unit on Immigration, we also work with the Imperfect Subjunctive. I teach that first, then introduce this. Later students will use the Imperfect Subjunctive to put themselves in the shoes of immigrants. This Word Doc has key vocabulary and terms front loaded. There are also questions that promote higher order thinking. Also included are the song lyrics, a link to a Youtube version, and discussion questions at the end. *Warning. The lyrics reference drugs, alcohol, topless bars, Lorena Bobbitt, and has the word "ramera." I recommend you look at the lyrics online before buying. I avoid the first verse and most of the chorus (where all of these are contained) and focus on the second verse. Also, the official video has a child urinating in a bucket and you can see his exposed buttocks. The video link I have included shows the album cover throughout the song.
