Product Description

This comprehensible reading based off the “Super Siete” Present Tense (from Terry Waltz) is about the Day of the Dead celebration traditions in Oaxaca, Mexico. This Spanish 1 novice-level Dia de Muertos cultural reading emphasizes the Super 7 Verbs while presenting authentic Mexican culture-in simple Spanish with beautiful photos and clear explanations for novice learners. It highlights the present tense forms and provides the meanings for the super 7 Spanish verbs as well as a comprehensive glossary of El Dia de los Muertos vocabulary. It also includes five creative and higher-level thinking extension activities for personalized learning.

The reading in Spanish details the basic traditions with the products, practices, AND perspectives of Oaxaca’s Day of the Dead, according to ACTFL guidelines. Your middle or high school Spanish students will be challenged and still comprehend the input they read, while learning about authentic Mexican culture! Each Super 7 verb is highlighted and meanings are provided. Students then choose between 5 activities:

5 activities included:

  1. Design your own calavera sugar skull
  2. Design your own ofrenda altar de muertos
  3. Write a trip itinerary for Oaxaca Day of the Dead events
  4. Write a postcard describing the events of the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca
  5. Create an altar for a TV character or family member.

NO PREP! Just print the reading (also prints well in black-and-white), and pages for extension activities. Have students work through the reading together and then choose their desired project to show their understanding.
