Three Ser Estar TPR Stories and Other Activities by Angie Torre. Students learn when to use the Spanish verbs, "ser" and "estar." The stories repeat the verbs multiple times in context and the activities cement the concept. Google-compatible digital versions are included for distance learning with Google slides.

The first story is about the twins, Ana and Maria. One day, Maria is too sick to go to school so Ana goes to her classes in her place. She also goes out with Mari­a's boyfriend while pretending to be Mari­a. Students stay engaged in the story to see what happens next. These are Word documents, not an illustrated PowerPoint.

This TPR story provides language in context to help the students assimilate the concept of ser and estar. After the dramatization of the story, students write in the verbs "ser" and "estar" and answer questions about the story. The narrative is written in the present tense and may be used before the lesson on the preterite.

The second story is about a girl who is struggling in her Spanish class until a new student comes into the class. This is also a Word document.

The third story is a 14-slide, illustrated Power Point about a poor man who struggles to feed his family until one day...

Also included are:

~A paired activity for Spanish Two
