¿Qué hará el gato?

Trying to predict what happens next in a video can be a fun and creative way to get students to practise the future tense. Before getting to that stage clearly there’s a lot of work to be done in teaching the future tense(s). Below is a PowerPoint to support this. The creative outcome stage is where you show one of the “Simon’s Cat” videos from YouTube. You only show it up to the point where the cat appears above the bed, which is quite early on in the video. You pause at this point + ask the class, with the aid of dictionaries or support, to write out what will happen next. Once you gather in suggestions you can then continue with the clip and tick off those that were correct. [As usual the video is embedded into the PowerPoint, but you will need to be connected to the internet for this to work].

  4. I actually used the idea with my grade 9, we were working on the structure imperfecto continuo/indefinido using cuando, we used the one where Simon is trying to watch a footbal match. It went really really well, it was fun and good practice for them. Thanks for sharing
