NOTE: This story was previously part of my House and Chores bundle, which is no longer offered in my store. If you previously purchased this bundle, do not buy this story -- you already own it!
This is a short story with text only (no pictures). I wrote it for Spanish 1 students to practice house and chores vocabulary.
Marianela and her brother, Otoniel, live in Venezuela. Their parents go on vacation and leave them with Aunt Josefina, who is obsessed with cleaning. Aunt Josefina makes Marianela and Otoniel clean the entire house.
This bundle includes:
- ¡Qué sucio! story (text only)
- Four worksheets with a full answer key
- A writing prompt
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.
