This storyboard model assumes that students have already learned the conjugations of ser and estar and their differences of use. It also assumes that students have already done some basic practice and are ready to put it all together. The creative scene is also appropriate to provide differentiation for advanced students.
Have students create their own creative scene, targeting images that will require various uses of ser and estar. Students will then write a descriptive paragraph below the cell, using complete sentences and describing all aspects of the illustration.
For example, this sample storyboard provides opportunities to express the location, physical attributes, and identities of objects and people. It also provides examples of personality, emotion, nationality, profession, material of an object, possession, time of day, and date. This scene also provides the opportunity to review basic vocabulary and expressing likes, dislikes, and pastimes should the teacher choose to interlace topics further.
Advanced: Instead of students writing out the description below the cell, students can instead give an oral presentation of the description.
