PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Matías is angry! Very, very, very, very angry! His classmates tell him which calming strategies work for them:
• cuento hasta diez
• respiro profundamente
• leo un libro
• hago ejercicios
• pienso en mi familia
• practico yoga
• escucho música
• pienso en mi lugar favorito
• tomo agua
Matías tries all of these things and feels much more calm. At the end of the story, he is happy!

I wrote this story as a bridge to talk about calming strategies with my students in the target language. This bundle includes the following:
• Matías está enojado - picture story
• Story cards (without text) for students to retell the story in Spanish
• A student version of the story in black and white
• Two worksheets
• A four-page teacher's guide with suggestions for teaching the story
• Game cards
• Calming strategies posters

NOTE: This story is sold in PDF format. I have received some requests to put these stories in PowerPoint format. However, many of the artists who create educational clipart specify that the clipart must be locked down in a PDF file, as this secures the file images. Some PDF viewing programs have the option to "view as slideshow", which looks very similar to a PowerPoint presentation. Other programs have the option to view as full screen or full page. This is how I use the PDF files in my class.

I teach this story with TPRS®, a method developed by Blaine Ray. This story provides input that is comprehensible, engaging, and carefully structured to include lots of repetition. I have been using TPRS® in my classes since 2007 and have found it to be a highly successful method for learning languages. I have used TPRS® with preschool through adult classes and have found that learners of all ages are captivated by stories.
