Activity Overview

This creative scene assumes that students have already learned the conjugations of tener, as well as the most common tener expressions. 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. Using this somewhat unusual dance scene as a model, students can work on their mastery of tener, as well as their speaking and writing skills. Each character in the scene demonstrates a different tener expression that students must identify and use. Have students create their own creative scene, targeting images that will require the use of tener expressions. Students will then write a descriptive paragraph below the cell, using complete sentences. Depending on how complex or simple of an activity is desired, instruct students to describe all aspects of the illustration, including review vocabulary and description.

Advanced 1: Instead of students writing out the description below the cell, students can instead give an oral presentation of the description.

Advanced 2: Instruct students to embed their sentences within the greater context of a narrative that is in line with their storyboard.
