Abriendo Pasos lecturas bundle contains PPTs in PDF format to accompany several stories found in the textbook "Abriendo Pasos Lectura". The visuals help students comprehend the stories. I also added a reading comprehension handout to make it more personal for the students for one of the stories (Jacinto Contreras recibe su paga extraordinaria). This is a growing bundle, as I add materials, you will be notified and will be able to download new material without an additional cost. I love this textbook. You can contact Pearson directly and request a sample copy:
When requesting a sample copy please note that it can take several months to receive. If you would like a copy now so that you can start reading the stories and preparing lessons, you can find used textbooks on E Bay from libraries for a few dollars:
I actually purchased a small classroom set of these textbooks used online many years ago. I purchased 15 books at only paid $3 per book. They're an older edition but still contain great stories with activities and brief biographies for authors. I have students share the textbook in class which is fine since they usually work in pairs. Best investment I have ever made for my classroom. Use these books year after year.

To accompany the lesson I use several graphic organizers. They help students organizer their thoughts and it gives them extra writing practice in the target language:
"Jacinto Contreras recibe su paga extraordinaria" handout with 10 reading comprehension questions that make it more personal for the students. It seems to make the stories more memorable when students can personally connect to the character's situation. I usually have students work with a partner and discuss their responses.
FL.6-12.7.1.IL.A.A.1 - Identify the main idea and some supporting details when reading.
FL.6-12.7.1.IL.A.A.3 - Infer the meaning of some unfamiliar words when used in familiar contexts.
