This reading is the perfect worksheet to use in class or for homework during the first week of school for Spanish 1 or 2 (there are two versions).
Spanish 1 version: The only vocabulary kids need to know is Éste/Ésta es, un muchacho/una muchacha, se llama, and le gusta. On the first page, students read three biographies and sketch the characters. Then, they answer questions about them. On the second page, kids read CLOZE style biographies of three famous people and fill in the blanks. Then, they choose one to translate. Finally, they draw a picture of a friend and write his or her biography, modeled after the ones on these two pages.
Spanish 2 version: Same activities, but the vocabulary is era, se llamaba, le gustaba, and comía
