Classroom activities: write poems using certain tenses

Here are the poems and short explanations of two students:

Katherine  Cross:

As a way to practice verb tenses, we were asked to write a poem. By doing this assignment I learned the proper way to use the conditional form, both in Spanish and in English. We had to manipulate different verbs in order for the poem to flow. On top of that, it was actually really fun to write because it allowed me to be creative. I chose to write mine on nature while others wrote about their past life, or thing they would change about themselves. If it had been just another assignment, I would not have understood the concepts as well.

Si fuera el aire
Yo podría ser libre
Bailaría con ángeles en el cielo
Y susurraría mi canción
Cuando el viento sopla
 
Si pudiera ser una montaña
Yo sería audaz
No me inclinaría a nadie
Estaría por encima de todo
Y estaría cubierta de nieve
 
Si fuera la lluvia
Traería pureza al mundo
Besaría la cara de aquellos que me miran
Y me caería para proporcionar la vida
A todas las criaturas
 
Si viviera como una flor
Tendría la humildad
Porque viviría una vida corta,
Creciendo, floreciendo, muriendo
Porque una criatura hermosa
Nunca duraría para siempre
 
Si fuera un río
Saltaría de roca en roca
Rollaría por la tierra
Por día o por la noche
Nunca detendría
 
Si me convirtiera en un oceano
Sería una casa grande
Para muchos pescados
que necesitan agua para respirar
Me alimentaría de la lluvía y los ríos
 
Si pudiera ser el sol
Proporcionaría la luz del universo
Bailaría con todos los planetas y las estrellas
Sería la madre de todo
Traería el calor a todo
 
Si fuera un grano de arena
Me rodearía de muchísimos amigos
Nacería de una roca grande
Sería moldeado por el viento
Y me calentaría del sol
 
Si quisiera ser una nube
Flotaría todo el tiempo
Ocultaría las puertas del cielo
Y cuando sería pesada
Me caería a la tierra
en la forma de lluvia
 
Si fuera la noche
Envolvería el mundo
en la oscuridad y la paz
Mostraría la luna y las estrellas infinitas
Para que todo pudiera dormer
 
Si naciera un árbol
Podría cambiar de verde, a amarillo, naranjado y rojo
Según las estaciones del año
Daría flores y frutas
Siempre alcanzaría para el cielo
 
Si fuera el relámpago
Nunca estaría solo
Porque tendría un amigo, el trueno
Que cantaría cuando aparece  la tormenta
 
Si viviera como fuego
Proporcionaría la vida y la muerte
Sería destructivo y curativo
Quemaría con pasión y con espíritu
 
Si fuera el carbón
Estaría bajo de presión
Trabajaría para ser mi forma más hermosa
Podría ser un diamante
 
Si fuera la nieve
Flotaría entre las nubes
Millones a la vez
Sería una manta blanca
Llevaría un sueño tranquilo
 
Pero, no me preocupo
Porque si pudiera cambiar
No lo haría
Me gustaría permanecerme
Para siempre...

Liz Aitkens:

Ever since school started getting difficult, I started to imagine what
my life would be life if I was born already knowing everything in the
world, so when Mr. Gatoux assigned us this project I knew exactly what I
wanted to do. When I started thinking about how my life could change and
how i could change the world, if I knew everything, so many thoughts
came to mind. This assignment was so much fun and it even helped me
learn the conditional tense in Spanish. Here's what I would do if I
could know everything in the world.

Si pudiera saber todo….

Sería la persona más inteligente del mundo
No asistiría a la escuela
Tendría una puesta muy buena que me paga mucho
con mi dinero, ayudaría las personas pobres
Podría inventar una cura para el cáncer
Ganaría un premio nobel
Podría ayudar y curar todas las personas enfermas
Podría saber acerca del cielo
establecería la paz mundial
encontraría una alternativa de la gasolina
podría mantenerse joven para siempre
sabría como detener el calentamiento global
podría saber todos los idiomas
podría predecir el futuro
crearía coches voladores
sabría la fórmula secreta de Coca Cola

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
