Aimsir Chaite PowerPoint – a quick, easy, visual way to teach the Aimsir Chaite!!
There are lots of ways to use this power point! I would learn 3-4 slides per week and then use the power point to revise them all daily! The teacher can point at the question in English and the kids can translate it, point to the tick and children tell you the positive answer and the x for the negative! (sit and say positive / stand and say negative etc!) You could also get the children to work in groups of 2/3 – one asks the question and 1 gives positive / negative answer etc. The pictures will help the children to formulate questions as confidence grows they can use tú / sé / sí etc.
The slides are broken into 3 sections – céad réimniú (1 syllable words), dara réimniú (2 syllable words) and briathra neamhrialta (irregular verbs) and they are colour coded so the d’ words get a pink slide and the irregular are on blue slides to help the children to stop and think… what is the rule, why is the slide a different colour! The root verb is also shown in the bubble on the top so they can see the rules in action and why the irregular verbs are just that!
Power point is 2019 version using Segoe Print font but you can change that if you wish as it is fully editable!
