PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A high quality READING activity for your Spanish students that you can download and use immediately!
This lesson fully covers the National Foreign Language COMPARISONS Standard 4.1.

Students practice their reading comprehension abilities and keep that "Affective Filter" (Krashen) open!

I wrote this handout to be chock full of COGNATES. Students GAIN CONFIDENCE in their reading abilities when they can recognize words and MAKE CONNECTIONS between English and Spanish.

This assignment can be done in cooperative groups, solo, as homework or as extra credit if there isn't time during the class period.

I loved this reading activity. It's so hard to find reading material for first year students! I also had students do a partner translation with this activity too. They loved it, it gave them a boost of confidence knowing that they could read the whole story in Spanish and understand it!
On  January 5, 2014LaProfesoraFrida answered:
Awesome!!
I'm so glad this reading activity was useful with your students!!
:D
Thank you for taking the time to leave such thorough, positive feedback!!

Overall the product was good but i would of prefer a few more reading comprehensions as well or a few more activties base on that reading. I know it was only one reading but a wide variety of different reaings next time with activites would be great i think...
On  September 30, 2013LaProfesoraFrida answered:
There should have been zero confusion about what this lesson actually contains. Just because it didn't have a bunch of extras that I did not claim were there is no reason to eave such a horrible rating on this very good lesson.
