El Subjuntivo

This is a PDF file of a graphic organizer for students who are learning the present subjunctive.  It can be printed front and back to make a tri-fold, or each panel can be cut out and glued to construction paper to make a more sturdy tri-fold.  Alternatively it can be just used as guided notes or a study sheet.

Regardless, I hope visitors here will find a purpose for it and that students will benefit from having the whole tense in one easy place!

Hasta pronto,

What do you use the part Weirdo for? Thanks

Señora Toering said...

WEIRDO is the acronym to remember most situations that require the subjunctive (given a change of subject):
Impersonal expressions
Doubt and Denial

This, of course, doesn't account for all of the situations (certain conjunctions and unknown/non-exsistent are not addressed in this acronym), but it's a good starting point!

Hi! I love this idea!! I am curious what the students do in the MANDATOS section...Do they choose a verb and then give the + and - command in each box? Or is this the ¡Que + subjunctive! structure that they are practicing? :) Sorry I'm confused!! Would love to see a picture of that section filled out if you have one!
¡Mil gracias por la ayuda!

Anne K said...

JAA, Since the command forms are all the same as the subjunctive (except the affirmative tú, of course), I teach the commands after my kids get a firm grip on the subjunctive. Then it's easy and (relatively) stress free. I just have the kids take a verb and put it in the negative and affirmative commands there at the end of the foldable. However, there is no reason why you couldn't use the indirect command (que + subjunctive) there instead. Either way, I hope it's useful to you and I hope your students find it to be a valuable study aid. <3 --AnneK

Tienes una clave que me podrías mandar? No estoy segura de como llenar el manipulativo. Si puedes tomar una foto y mandarmelo a or a Voy a cubrir el subjuntivo el lunes y la necesito lo mas pronto posible. Gracias de antemano.

Señorita Rochon, You caught me at a time when I actually had a free moment to spare and I have made you an answer key. It should be available at the link above but, in case it isn't showing, here it is:

I would caution you that this trifold was meant as a study aide -after- the students had already learned the subjunctive. I don't know how you plan to use it yourself, but I don't think I would use it to introduce the subjunctive. There is a LOT of information there and you don't want to overwhelm your students.

Thank you for visiting my blog and please don't be a stranger!
