Product Description
¡Caray, mi abuelita tiene un móvil inteligente!

"Caray, mi abuelita tiene un móvil inteligente" is a short story for Spanish 2+ (although, I used this at the end of Spanish 1), about a young girl who gets her grandmother a phone. The story is set in the grandmother's home, on the day of her birthday. Many family members come to visit as the grandmother makes "arroz, plátano, y flan (cultural foods and family vocabulary)." Sara, the granddaughter walks her grandmother through how to use a Smartphone (technology vocabulary, commands), when she discovers that her grandmother has a few secrets, and she wants to go on a dating site! The story is told in the past tense, which an emphasis on preterite and imperfect. See the full synopsis below!

This story features illustrations, one ad (grandmother's dating website, and profile of grandmother).

This short story can be read individually as part of Free Voluntary Reading (FVR booklet included) or as a class. I used this story as part of my technology unit. It includes many relevant terms that students used today to interact with technology such as "descargar una aplicación”, “subir una foto al Instagram”, “chatear con los amigos”, etc. Many of the words are naturally embedded into the context of the story and repeated.

Synopsis: Sara enjoys hanging out with her crazy "Primos" and “Tíos" at their weekly “Reunión” at "La casa de abuela.” From listening to her crazy aunt's tales about the adventures of internet dating to her grandmother's funny jokes (comprehensible & appropriate), she wouldn't want to be anywhere else on Sunday. However, this Sunday is super special because it is her grandmother's birthday, and Sara has just made her day by buying her a smartphone. While Sara teaches her “abuelita” how to use the smartphone, her grandmother discovers some “creative uses” for her new smartphone. Abuela Irma realizes even at 75 years old, her best years are ahead of her!
