“Mustang Murals” is envisioned as a bilingual, school-wide event, semester-long, theme-centered, integrated studies series of events. See the Mustang Mural and other plans and artwork on the Murals-Community Art blog post.
This is a great way to loosen up, have fun, get a lot done, and focus. It could be used as a regular “seeing” warm-up. No one has to be Michelangelo. It is an adaptable and student-centered activity.
Spanish Verb Stems & Endings for 7 Tenses & Moods, a ONE page graphic!
I had to make sense of the material for myself. Putting it in graphic, pattern-recognizing form, and re-drafting it over the years, it fills the verb-conjugating jungle with hope and de-mystifies it. If it fits on one page, it seems do-able. Even native speakers have use for it.
I, who am enlightened by grammar terms, realized that many of my students were going blank when I used those mystical terms. This one-page graphic gives a clear, basic visual of all those terms to practice with. Introduce one section at a time, like simple subject-verb sentences, “I walk.” “Judy sings.” Ask for student examples till they get it, then add the next section.
