Description: Chuy (of the Spork and Chuy duo) is curious and interested in his worm farm. But Chuy’s room smells bad. Really bad. He needs to clean his room…but what is it that smells so bad? The answer will surprise you!
Includes: Illustrated (slightly wacky) story, blank illustration page for students to create their own page, Exit ticket/Comprehension quiz and key, page for students to illustrate "Feliz como una lombriz."
As a TPRS/CI teacher, I'm always looking for more stories that my very beginning learners can read on their own. In this story I attempted to keep language simple, and illustrate the text so that meaning is more clear. There is a glossary for most words in the back as well.
Targeted structures: huele mal, agarra, tira, dormitorio, nariz
You can print the story for your classroom library, for students to read on their own, or you can read it aloud with your students.
Please let me know if you have difficulty opening the file or notice errors. I will do my best to correct them. I would love feedback on what you liked or what could be improved. Right now it is black and white for ease of printing, and if there is interest I’ll make a color version.
If you like this story, please also look for my story about Chuy and his friend Spork called "Helado gratis mañana"!
