3 original Stories about Saint Patrick's Day in Spanish with comprehension questions.

All three reading passages use the Pretérito (Spanish Past Tense) making it ideal for Spanish 2 level classes.

Reading Passage 1: El festival de San Patricio
A family's trip to Ireland around the time of Saint Patrick's Day.

Reading Passage 2: El duende Toti
A leprechaun decides to go to the St. Patrick's Day Festival in Dublin, Ireland.

Reading Passage 3: El día de suerte
Ana goes looking for a four-leaf clover because she wants to have some luck.

These reading activities would be great for substitute teachers or in an emergency as a quick filler.

The worksheets are ideal for bilingual / dual language classrooms since they are completely in Spanish, including the instructions. Students are likely to encounter new vocabulary on each page so it would be good to explain (or draw) it before giving out the handouts.

Bonus Listening Activity

We have now included these stories on separate pages, this time with certain words missing and replaced by a blank line where students can fill in the word they hear from our recording. This audio of this recording is in a video on our YouTube channel so students can listen to the stories in Spanish in the classroom or at home.

Note: The audio of the listening only appears on our YouTube channel. The recording is spoken by a native Spanish speaker.

Here is the audio that accompanies the stories. It will also give you an idea of the content and level of these reading passages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tjdTgMEEj4
