Oh, the fun of synthesis! This is a great opportunity for your students to show off their mastery of reflexives and their storytelling ability in Spanish. In the following storyboard activity, students will put all of their reflexive verb knowledge to use within the context of a narrative. Students can be asked to include specific items such as reflexives in present tense, past tense, irregular reflexives, reflexive boot verbs, reflexive infinitives, etc. Providing students with a minimum number of different reflexive verbs to use may also be a good idea, for example asking them to use a set list of reflexives. You might also specify using various conjugations, such as at least one yo, one nosotros, and one él/ella. These parameters will help students focus on the application of the various facets of the reflexive verb topic.
In the storyboard example, a bride is preparing for her wedding, and between the description box and the text bubbles in the cells, there are various examples of reflexive infinitives and present tense reflexives. The last cell in the model storyboard is to prompt a completion of the wedding narrative. Students, however, should complete their narratives and will likely need at least eight cells.
