6 thoughts on “Verb Wall Option”

  1. I tried this out with French 2. Just jotted a verb on the board. It was probably a little sloppy, okay, it was sloppy. I asked them if they found it distracting. I was surprised that many of them did. I will try again with a tidier presentation. With that said, I think French 3 may appreciate this. Interesting, Grant. It may be that it ends up being more interesting to me than to them!

    1. I also have no wall space but I will try to make a PP of at least the verbs I am PQAing. I have a feeling that the upper levels may appreciate this more – it’s the time that all the input allows them to see the patterns that you were talking about in the Petit Prince reading.

  2. It looks too much like a conjugation chart and the word “conjugation” is unofficially banned from my classroom.
    Maybe I do something like this though . . . I have those Super 7 verbs and their English translation, those verbs I use all the time, in 3 columns (most frequent past tense, second person present, and first person present) on my front whiteboard. These are the words I use in every story that we are in the process of acquiring. I tell the story in the past, I ask the actors questions in the tú form, and they respond in the first person. This way, I just laser the word I am using if I don’t think the kids have it yet. My board looks cluttered, but the focus of the class is never on the words on the board, rather, it is on the people in the room. I don’t think the kids stress those words on the board, because they know I don’t test them on the individual words and they know I will always laser point if there is any hint at all that someone isn’t understanding me.
    For all other tenses I use finger indication gestures for the subject pronouns and the verb tense. Sometimes I add the target structure verbs to the 3 columns. I would love to eventually not need the 3 columns of the Super 7 on the board, but that is not likely since my younger grades receive so little instructional time and need that extra visual support.

  3. I would love to participate but I have absolutely no wall space in any of the three rooms I teach every day. I will follow the development of this with curiosity, though, because maybe one day I will (have wall space).
