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.

Spanish 1 Curriculum: Así se dice Chapter 1

Spanish 1 Curriculum: Así se dice Chapter 1

This unit plan is based on 10 weeks and is a detailed outline of how I taught the following units in my middle school classroom: Identifying people and things, definite and indefinite articles, masculine/feminine nouns, pronouns, AR verbs, ser, and adjectives for describing yourself and others. It was written for 40 minute periods on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and an 84 minute block on Wednesdays/Thursdays. While your school may not be on the exact same schedule, there are enough activities for you to adapt and fit the needs of your students and classroom! This unit was loosely based on the scope and sequence of Así se dice Level 1 textbook, but you do not need to use this book to be able to follow these plans! If you have the book though, consider this the best money you ever spent! Also note that I move AR verbs up to chapter one, because in my experience, it's easier to teach the irregulars (ser) after they understand what "regular" conjugations mean. Within this PDF file there are links to over 50 Google Drive files as well as links to videos, music, and practice websites. My school is a 1:1 device building, and many of my activities require students to have their own device. Some products are sold separately!
