Activity Includes: basic to intermediate vocabulary
The -CAR, -GAR, -ZAR category of preterite is really a subset of the regular -AR category. These verbs that end in -car, -gar, or -zar such as sacar, llegar, and almorzar, are conjugated with the regular -AR endings. The only exception here is that the yo form has a spelling change. The changes are that the yo-qué, for -gar verbs it is -gué, and for -zar verbs it is -cé. Since the other forms of these verbs are regular, this storyboard activity only focuses on practicing the irregular yo form. The model only includes one example of each, but have students create at least two examples per column. Each cell should include an original sentence using the yo form of the chosen verb and a scene illustrating the student’s sentence. Have students add title blocks for the infinitive verbs, and a note for the occurring change somewhere in the cells (ex. -car → -qué).
