I am only teaching Spanish 1 this year so we do not do conjugation charts, we learn the verb naturally. Sure they know the 1st and 2nd singular forms better than the rest but they learn it through natural speech. This is my first year trying this, I am not sure how it is going yet. I am guessing I will find out next year when I teach Spanish 2 and introduce them to the charts.
At my school we have two Spanish teachers. Sra. Anthony has Spanish 2 this year. Next year we will rotate so we keep the same students for the most part.
Here is a version of conjugation races that I will use next year.
I am storing it here now for future use. 🙂
Separate class into four teams of three to four students each.
I write four grids on the board, and give the two racing teams a marker.
They each take turns racing to the board to conjugate the verb that I wrote in their own chart.
On their turn, they can either write the correct verb form next to a subject (I, You, etc) or change a previous conjugation to make it correct.
No one can talk to the person at the board while they are at the board.
The winner completes the conjugation grid with all of the verbs correctly.
I would love to hear about some games you play in class!
