This is the eleventh story in the "Había una vez - Year 1" curriculum. It directly follows La Caperucita Roja.
If you are not following this curriculum, you can teach "El pirata y el mono" as a stand-alone story.
I created this story for students in an elementary FLES program. It will work best with students from preschool through second grade.

When I am reading the story to the whole class, I project it on a Promethean Board from my computer (many PDF viewing programs have the option to view PDF files as full page or as a slideshow). I also print out several copies, laminate them, and keep them as part of our classroom library. If students finish their work early, they can go to the library and check out a book. I also incorporate regular reading time in our class periods so all students can review the stories we have already learned.
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.
