Spanish Thanksgiving Reading - Día de Acción de Gracias
Simple reading activities in Spanish about Thanksgiving Day (Día de Acción de Gracias) for lower level Spanish students (upper Spanish 1 or Spanish 2 review).
All texts are short with between 2 and 3 sentences written in the Simple Present Tense. The rest of the page has simple comprehension questions to check understanding.
These worksheets should only take 10-15 minutes each so are a great item to warm up a class or to end the day. You could do a worksheet every day (lasting a school week) or leave them as homework.
These reading passages would be great in an emergency as a quick filler and you may also find them useful to hand out to fast finishers (so they don’t disrupt others).
There are two versions of each reading passage. One version has a image representing what the reading is about. The other version is without the image. This imageless version is ideal for younger students since each worksheet has a space where they need to draw (and correctly color) something that is mentioned in the text.
All reading texts, questions and instructions are 100% in Spanish making it ideal for language immersion classrooms.
Bonus Listening Activity
We have now included a sheet with the 5 stories on one page (without exercises). This is can be used where the teacher gives the comprehension questions orally, or can be used in conjunction with the audio on our YouTube channel so they can read as they listen (without the distraction of other activities on the page).
There is another sheet with the 5 stories on one page, but this time with certain words missing and replaced by a blank line where students can fill with the word they hear on the listening.
Note: The audio of the listening only appears on our YouTube channel. The recording is spoken by a native Spanish speaker.
Here is the audio that accompanies the short stories. It will also give you an idea of the content and level of these short reading passages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXrrUwfsv68
