Product Description
Getting Started
“Carlos la tortuga” is an extended reading for beginning past tenses in Spanish. It is the second story in my past tense teaching for Spanish 2. Both the preterite and imperfect are used in the story. Though not necessary, I recommend that the students already be exposed to the following vocabulary previous to the story:
1. Había
2. Estaba
3. Era

I begin with a story skeleton using the following vocabulary:
1. Tenía
2. Necesitaba
3. Fue
4. Le dijo

The skeleton:
Había un/a ______________. Tenía un/a ____________________ pero necesitaba un/una ________________. Fue a _______________. Necesitaba hablar con ____#1___. Le dijo, “Necesito un ____________.” ___#1___ no tenía un/a _________. __#1___ le dijo que necesitaba hablar con _____ en _____. (Personaje principal) fue a _______.

The entended story is about a turtle named Carlos who dances the dab and his search for a new owner. His journey takes him to Beverly Hills, Mexico and Puerto Rico. In Beverly Hills, Kayne doesn't accept him because he doesn't like Carlos' shoes. Bill Gates in Mexico can't keep him because he only dances the tango. But Beyoncé in Puerto Rico is the perfect match for Carlos!

I have also included a list of the activities that I use for this particular reading and a link to a Kahoot! activity.
