This story is perfect for teaching chores vocabulary to students. It includes the following chores vocabulary:
barrer el suelo
trapear el suelo
quitar el polvo
This is also a great story to practice tener que, the phrase "de repente", and the verbs quedarle and quedarse.
Note: I included a different (text only) version of Cenicienta in my House and Chores bundle, which is no longer offered in my store. If you purchased the House and Chores bundle, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will check my records, and if you purchased the bundle, I will send you this story and the accompanying resources for free! (If you're not sure if you purchased the House and Chores bundle, check to see if you have a text-only version of Cenicienta. If you do, you purchased the bundle.)
When I am reading the story to the whole class, I project it on a Promethean Board from my computer (many PDF viewing programs have the option to view PDF files as full page or as a slideshow). I also print out several copies, laminate them, and keep them as part of our classroom library. If students finish their work early, they can go to the library and check out a book. I also incorporate regular reading time in our class periods so all students can review the stories we have already learned.
NOTE: This story is sold in PDF format. I have received some requests to put these stories in PowerPoint format. However, many of the artists who create educational clipart specify that the clipart must be locked down in a PDF file, as this secures the file images. Some PDF viewing programs have the option to "view as slideshow", which looks very similar to a PowerPoint presentation. Other programs have the option to view as full screen or full page. This is how I use the PDF files in my class.
I teach this story with TPRS®, a method developed by Blaine Ray.
This story provides input that is comprehensible, engaging, and carefully structured to include lots of repetition. I have been using TPRS® in my classes since 2007 and have found it to be a highly successful method for learning languages. I have used TPRS® with preschool through adult classes and have found that learners of all ages are captivated by stories.
