Product Description
Main Street is closed for the whole city to enjoy 2 kilometers of cakes! Yes, this really happened! I came upon this scene January 7th of last year in Zacatecas, Mexico, and have been wanting to share this fun celebration the day after Día de Reyes with my students ever since. The result: this story, read-along video (narrated by a native speaker from Zacatecas), and accompanying handout for story-based activities.

I hope you will find it useful to incorporate into a unit on holidays, for targeted practice for preterite versus imperfect, and/or as a reading comprehension activity.

Your download includes the following:
1. Powerpoint file of the story featuring original photos and videos.
2. PDF version of the story for easy printing to make a booklet
3. Text-only version of the story for easy, printing for handouts
4. 2-page activity sheet
5. Answer key

The activity sheet features 5 components:
• Vocabulario – quick prep for understanding key words in the story
• Comprehensión de lectura
• Conversación y escritura– retelling the narration to solidify comprehension and practice narration in the past tense
• Gramática – Preterite versus imperfect cloze activity
• Conexiones y culturas – internet search for other celebrations and written description of other ways Día de Reyes is celebrated

The read-along video can be found on youtube at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLYql-r4dQE&t=11s

Note, if you just want to preview or just use the activity sheet it is available for free on my blog, www.estudiafeliz.com at this specific post link: https://estudiafeliz.com/2017/08/07/la-monumental-rosca-de-reyes-de-zacatecas-story-and-activities-preterite-versus-imperfect-culture-holiday-celebrations/
