A brand-new teaching resource is now available on the Learning Activity Resources page.
The Complete Verb Pack contains the three charts in the free Simple Verb Pack (present, sudden past, and descriptive past) and five more charts designed to help your intermediate to pre-advanced students refine their accuracy. Each page contains an entire verb tense (at least!) or verb concept visually represented on one page. Here’s a breakdown of the eight charts included:
1) Summary of present tense, including irregulars
2) Sudden past (preterite), including irregulars
3) Descriptive past, including irregulars and reasons for use with examples
4) Future and Conditional tenses, with irregular stems used for both
5) Commands, informal and formal, negative and positive, with notes about pronoun usage, and irregulars
6) Crazy verb switch (subjunctive), with how to form both present and past, and summary of uses with examples in Spanish (yes! the whole subjunctive tense on ONE PAGE!)
7) “HappenING” verbs (the progressive), with irregulars
8) “-ado/-ido” words (uses of the participio), with irregulars, and descriptions and examples in Spanish of all four uses of the past participle
Before you use this resource, please read my post “How I use verb charts,” and in particular, please use them in keeping with the spirit of Musicuentos as a site designed you help you in proficiency-based teaching. Verb charts are most helpful to refine accuracy in students who already have measurable proficiency. I think this complete verb pack is especially appropriate for AP and IB courses, advanced college grammar courses, and literature and other courses requiring large amounts of writing.
The Simple Verb Pack is free, and the Complete Verb Pack is available for $3.98 -the price of my favorite drink, a Starbucks decaf peppermint mocha, hold the whipped cream- and helps offset the cost of my website and time. This price includes a license for you to reproduce the charts for all of your students for as long as you are teaching.
