Conjugation with Scissors and Tape

Once they had those verb endings running around in their heads, I showed them, using a card with the infinitive form of a verb written on it and a pair of scissors, how you take off the infinitive ending

and put in its place one of the endings we had been singing. We spent a day doing a lot of cutting and pasting, or rather cutting and taping.

But, of course, cutting up a card isn’t the same as producing a conjugated verb in conversation.

Tomorrow is the final conjugation post.

You are a really good teacher, Annette. At least, I think you are. I don't know any Bosnian, so I really have no clue. But all of the ideas seem quite innovative.
