There is a LOT of material in this resource. It's a modified version of the tale of Bluebeard by Charles Perrault (1628-1703). I've changed the grammar and wording around to make it appropriate for a level 2 or 3 French class. The pre-readings include vocabulary that will be used in the story, as well as verb conjugation practice. The story itself has small boxes off to the side of each paragraph for the students to take notes/write summaries.
It is spread out over the course of three days. The pre-readings take about 20 minutes each. I have the students use wordreference.com to fill in the definitions. I've also included an answer key to each pre-reading in the pdf.
On my dashboard, you'll also find two assessments available for purchase that go along with this story: a tic-tac-toe revision exercise and a test.
