What is Conjugarte?

When I was little I used to love to draw using these grid art worksheets in which little by little, square by square, a picture is revealed! We’ve combined that idea with verb conjugation! To do so, we’ve replaced the letter-number grid system (A-1) with a verb-subject grid (hablar, yo).

In addition to practicing preterite and imperfect verb conjugations, you’ll get to recreate some of the great artwork of the Spanish-speaking world from Salvador Dalí, Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, José Guadalupe Posada and more!
