These guided notes introduce students to preterite endings for -ER and -IR regular verbs with fill-in-the-blank notes and guided activities that increase in complexity, beginning with Spanish-English translation and ending with a perspective change re-write of a story provided (four options for the re-write are provided, depending on how much or how little scaffolding you want to provide for your students). It is suggested to teach this after students have studied and are comfortable with -AR regular preterit endings.

This resource also includes PAPERLESS/Digital versions of all activities.

  • Love the grammar in context series! My students tend to shut down when grammar is just thrown at them but with these, they can see that they already understand so much!

  • I really appreciate how nicely the notes are laid out. It's visually easy to read and easy to explain from exactly what is provided. It takes very little prep on my part, it's all ready to go. Thank you! Great resource!
