In this "Find someone who" activity, students practice 1st and 2nd person regular preterite verb forms (with the exception of fuiste/fui, which is also included) to talk about their Winter break.

  • This was a simple activity that allowed students to move around the room and talk about their winter break while using Spanish. One class chose to use the activity to interview a single student rather than walk around. We followed up by beginning the mini unit on Nochevieja.

  • I used this with my high school students the first day back from winter break. After talking to each other, I had them pick five of the boxes and write a sentence about what someone else did. I also showed them the first person singular forms of the verbs and they had to write five sentences about what they did over vacation. Thank you for the great resource!

  • Thank you for another great resource. My students used this as a way to prepare for our writing final exam. It was a good way to get moving while actually brainstorming for a final exam.

  • I used this right after winter break! It was easily accessible for my Spanish 1 students since they were able to recognize the cognates in the past tense!
