'The Gingerbread Man'  (Spanish Storybook)

'The Gingerbread Man' (Spanish Storybook)

A resource I have created for teaching MFL on my PGCE course, and the first resource that I have uploaded to TES! Included are two Publisher documents: The first contains the story of 'The Gingerbread Man' in Spanish, with colour illustrations and large 'Comic Sans' font. The second is the same storybook, but in English - great as a reference for teachers, or for parents to use with children! UPDATE: I've added the two versions as PDFs - so even if you don't have Publisher on your PC, or if you're using a Mac, you should be able to open, use and print the resources :)
