Teach Two Aspects of Past Tense
Teachers have always said that the differences between the imperfect and the preterite are hard to teach. Not anymore! Nineteen humorous short stories (plus the clarifying Hoja de Reglas) help students understand and choose the correct verb tenses when speaking or writing "in the past."
Preterite and Imperfect Made Easy activities include:
- crossword puzzles
- word searches
- question and answer
Includes a PowerPoint® game and answer key.
