This four-day cultural unit will introduce your students to the legend of the Silbón and expose students to present tense forms of the verb "ir" (voy, vas, va, vamos, van--vais is not included). The unit is designed for novice Spanish students before the end of the first semester. Instead of providing students with notes and traditional grammar practice, this unit helps students acquire the forms of the verb "ir" as they read them many times in context. The file includes:

  • a 20-page, projectable reading in Spanish that is an original, parallel story to the legend of the Silbón
  • several post-reading activities
  • a 1-page reading in Spanish that explains the legend of El Silbón
  • post-reading comprehension activities
  • a series of activities to compare and contrast the two stories
  • daily warm-ups
  • answer keys
  • detailed lesson plans

This unit was written using vocabulary from Units 1-9 of the «Somos» curriculum for Spanish 1. All other non-cognates are footnoted in the readings (13 footnotes total). In Unit 9, students learn about El Cucuy:
