A high quality reading comprehension activity for your Spanish students that you can download and use immediately!
This lesson fully covers the National Foreign Language COMPARISONS Standard 4.1. and contain comprehensible vocabulary words!
Students practice their reading comprehension abilities and keep that "Affective Filter" (Krashen) open!
I wrote this handout to be chock full of COGNATES. Students gain confidence in their reading abilities when they can recognize words and make connections between English and Spanish.
This assignment can be done in cooperative groups, solo, as homework or as extra credit if there isn't time during the class period.
Update! I just added an additional page to this lesson! It can be done separately, as a class warm up or to have on hand for an emergency substitute folder!
What teachers are saying:
"I used this activity as a brain break when I felt my students needed a boost in confidence! Upon completion, they felt much more assurance as to how much Spanish they truly do know. Thank you so much!"
"This is genius!! A reading comprehension made up of cognates totally boosts first year confidence and excitement about the language! Thank you!!!"
