This is a TPR story that is great for beginners. It's in the present tense and focuses on Ser & Estar. The story is about a girl from Japan who goes on vacation to Bali, Indonesia with her mom and boyfriend.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE STRUCTURES IN THE STORY:
ser (soy de japón, es delgada, es enfermera, son alumnos, Indonesia es muy bonita)
estar (está contenta, está celosa, estoy aquí, estoy enamorado de ti, están en la playa)
ir (va a la playa, vamos a Indonesia, vamos de vacaciones)
AT THE END OF THE STORY SLIDES I INCLUDED THREE QUESTION SLIDES:
5 questions in Spanish, students respond in Spanish
5 True or False statements in Spanish
5 questions in English, students respond in English
THE WAY I USED THIS ACTIVITY:
I turned the PPT into a PDF and uploaded it to my Google Classroom page. I had students read the story on their own. When they got to question slides I had them answer the questions on a loose leaf piece of paper. This is perfect for a sub plan.
You could edit anything you want on the story or the questions since I am selling it in PPT format. There are so many ways you could use this story. You could do it live with the class or use it as an assessment.
