This story is perfect to actively encourage your students to be exposed to Spanish in a fun way and teach about Navidad. My friend and I created it as an adaptation from "The Nutcracker". Introduce the characters and the actions and then read the story to your students. They will enjoy finding out what the story is about while they are performing what you are reading. Display the story on the OHP or on the smartboard and play "Prove it" by asking your students questions and inviting them to point to the right anwswer on the text. Worksheet and power point presentation available in this website.
