Soccer / fútbol in Spain / España: meet Cristiano Ronaldo: the best soccer player in the world!
This document includes 3 leveled readings in Spanish about Cristiano Ronaldo. The most basic reading is comprehensible for Novice readers, and each subsequent reading includes more detail about the famous soccer player.
In this document you will find the 3 readings in 3 different folders. Each of the 3 folders includes:
- A pdf file with the reading and the comprehension activities.
- Comprehension questions in English and Spanish.
- A CLOZE transcript for an authentic listening activity.
- Answer Keys.
- An editable version of the reading and the exercises :)
- Three mp3 files with the audios.
- A Power Point presentation with embedded audios recorded by a native Spanish teacher.
Teachers may choose to use these readings in class; to print, laminate, and add to the class library for free reading; or to incorporate in a Fast Finisher system. You can also follow my Suggested Lesson Plan.
Suggested Lesson Plan
I include 3 Power Point presentations. The teacher will choose the level of difficulty: basic, expanded, or advanced. Each of the Power Point presentations is divided in 3 parts:
I include a picture with some of the soccer vocabulary that the students will later find in the text about Ronaldo.
The teacher will play the embedded audio, and the students will:
A. Listen and repeat each of the new words.
B. Listen and say the number that matches each word.
The teacher will play the audio so the students can listen and read the text at the same time.
After reading the text, students may have questions about the vocabulary, or they may want to talk about Ronaldo´s life. After this, I include a printable sheet with comprehension questions in English and Spanish. I also include a cloze test. The answer keys are included, so you can print them, check them on the computer, correct the exercises with your students on the interactive whiteboard,…
