Spanish reading: Reflexive verb practice

(0)
Help students learn common reflexive verb vocabulary through this silly story! Typically I have students read aloud with a partner and highlight the words, then reread in English (TPRS strategy) before answering the questions in Spanish. The story is written entirely in the present tense. In this story, Tarzan really wants to impress Jane, so he does something he has never done before: he bathes, washes and combs his hair, and brushes his teeth. Included vocabulary: ducharse, bañarse, cepillarse, despertarse, acostarse, ponerse, peinarse, lavarse, maquillarse

This tic-tac-toe game is a fun activity to practice the different uses for por and para. Instead of writing X's and O's in the boxes, they complete the sentence with the correct form of the verb and try to beat their partner with three in a row. Perfect for stations or whole class work! Photocopy this set one time, use with page protectors and dry erase markers, and use for years to come! Answer keys are included so students can self-monitor and learn from their mistakes! This includes 4 boards total.

Targeted vocabulary includes: el cine, las películas, el museo, los cuadros, los pintores, las estatuas, el cantante, tocar un instrumento, y la banda. This version is written entirely in the past tense, but you can also purchase the present tense version HERE. Both include a vocabulary activity and comprehension questions.

Spanish readings: technology, phones, and emotions

(0)
These stories were originally written to teach vocabulary for talking on the phone, but also incorporate a lot of emotion words as well. A boy receives a mysterious text during class asking him to hang out on Friday. He agonizes over the best way to reply. In part two of the story, after embarrassing himself by assuming it was a few different girls in his class, he finds out that the text came from his mom who got a new phone and didn't know how to use it. Both stories include comprehension questions as well. Stories are written in present tense, but I hope to have past tense versions available soon if there is interest!

The first 4 stories were written to accompany the vocabulary from the textbook Así Se Dice and the last 4 stories were written for vocab in the textbook En Español. Both sets of stories provide great, repetitive input for beginning readers in Spanish and are meant to teach vocab in smaller chunks than the books provide. Story titles include "El famoso Miguel Jordan," "Babe el beisbolista", "¿Fútbol o fútbol americano?" and more! Each story also comes with a vocab activity as well. Please email me if you need the Word file so you can edit!
