Past shopping trip - Preterito indefinido or Preterito imperfecto

Past shopping trip - Preterito indefinido or Preterito imperfecto

I created this presentation to help pupils understand the concepts behind the use of the preterito indefinido (I refer to as 'preterite' in the PPT) and the preterito imperfecto ('imperfect'). Pupils are introduced to the mnemonics SIMBA and DARE TWO BE U to help them practise and remember the different contexts in which these two tenses are used. Next, they identify verbs in these two tenses, in two texts about shopping trips, before finally completing a reading comprehension task. There is also a document I made to support the pupils with their own piece of writing, which was completed as homework.

Song about addiction SPANISH

Song about addiction SPANISH

This resource is based on the lyrics from the song 'Un buen castigo' by Fito y fitipaldis. I created a series of short activities to practise vocabulary, pronunciation and antonyms. Much of the vocabulary is connected to the theme of addiction. The song merges the ideas of love and drug addiction.

Peer Assessment - GCSE Writing Spanish

I created and adapted this presentation for use with years 9-11 Spanish in order to raise their awareness of the GCSE marking criteria, and to give them a clearer idea of how to improve the quality of their writing. This could easily be adapted for other languages.
