Unit 3 - Irregular Verbs in the Future & Conditional Tenses

ETAP 623 Fall 2010

Vivian's Portfolio Page

Introduction

This unit will be very similar to Unit 2 in that we will be focusing on conjugation of verbs in the future and conditional tenses. The only difference will be that we will be focusing on conjugating the irregular verbs in these tenses. As mentioned previously, these tenses are taught together because they are conjugated very similarly to one another, and, when it comes to these tenses, they share the same irregular verbs. The smartboard will once again be utilized in an effort to reach students with varying skill levels and learning styles.

Instructional Objectives

  1. Students will be able to conjugate regular verbs into the future and conditional tenses.
  2. Students will be able to use the appropriate key words in English in their translations of verbs conjugated into the future and conditional tenses.

Pre-Requisite Skills

  1. Understand the difference between the words "will" and "would" in English
  2. Understand the basic subject pronouns in Spanish
  3. Understand the basic conjugation procedures in Spanish
  4. Conjugate both present tense and past tense verbs in Spanish

Instructional Activities

  • To reinforce the regular future and conditional conjugations that the students learned in the previous lesson, I will ask them to first list the regular future and conditional endings on the smart board, and then to conjugate the verbs on the smart board as well. The students are very engaged when asked to volunteer to write on the smartboard, and are very willing to volunteer when asked.
  • We will then bring up the same vocabulary pictures that we used in the last class to help practice vocabulary, yet this time I will ask students to write sentences using the irregular verbs in conjunctions with the vocabulary words represented by the photos. Media:El Empleo Pictures.pdf
  • To make sure the students are remembering their key words in English for these tenses, I will ask them to write the questions that would prompt the answers listed. Answers are in both future and conditional to make sure they are looking at the conjugations in Spanish to decipher which tense is being used. The file is attached in pdf.
