Los Verbos Reflexivos

When I was a student learning reflexives for the first time, I thought to myself, “Why do these verbs have a ‘se’ at the end? How am I supposed to conjugate these?” A topic I struggled with as a student, I had difficulty the first year I taught it to my own students. I cringed when one of my students, right before the quiz asked “What are reflexives???” Had she not been paying attention the last two weeks (very well a possibility)?? I thought to myself there must be a better way!

The following year, I used this guided note packet which fully explained the ins-and-outs of reflexive verbs. I watch as my students’ quiz scores rose. I saw them being able to use reflexive verbs in their writing. Clearly, they had “got it”.  And now I share this enlightenment with all the Spanish teachers out there struggling on how to best teach this difficult unit.
