Used in conjunction with TPRS, and based on the Realidades Textbook this 127-page student packet includes:
-19 vocabulary lists for a Spanish Level 1 class
-3-6 short stories/paragraphs (per vocabulary set) using the words from that month's vocabulary list -to be read and translated (some paragraphs include questions that go with the story)
-worksheets that go with some of the vocabulary lists
-Grammatical Charts and Explanations of the Following Forms:
Articles, Adjectives, Possessive Adjectives, Possessive Pronouns, Demonstrative Adjectives, Comparisons of Inequality and Equality, Superlatives, Present Tense, Stem-Changing Verbs, Present and Past Progressive Tense, Reflexive Verbs, Verbs like Gustar, and the Past Tense (Preterite).
-5 pages for new words (presented through TPRS or other means) for students to keep track of notes and return to for help
Some of the written paragraphs have coinciding questions to check for understanding of the reading. Most paragraphs do not include instructions so that the teacher may use the reading at his/her discretion. Instead, they have a space for students to do any of the following:
1.) translate the paragraph
2.) write their own questions based on the reading (have a partner answer the questions)
3.) change from past tense to present tense (or vice versa)
4.) summarize the story (in Spanish) in third person, second person, first person, etc.
5.) any other awesome ideas you can think of!
