This set of lesson plans centers on the popular tale, "The Wide Mouthed Frog". The suggested lesson plans begin with a simplified reading of the classic story in Spanish and then work through an adapted version that features animals that inhabit the Amazon Rainforest.
This story is easy to understand for students in Spanish 1 even though it is told in the past tense.
The materials include:
-an illustrated PDF of the classic story (in Spanish, ideal for projection)
-a Reader's Theater script of an expanded version of the classic story
-a suggested video and accompanying discussion questions
-a printable 28-page, fully illustrated storybook in Spanish of the Amazon version WITH glossary
-a printable deck of cards to play SPOONS using the animals and their descriptors from the Amazon story
-a text-only version of the story from the storybook for you to use as desired with your classes
-a two-page Amazon animals reference guide (in Spanish)
-detailed lesson plans for implementation in class; sufficient for 2-3 days
