This story is modeled after Blaine Ray extended readings.
This reading focuses on the verb mettre and store and clothing vocabulary. The vocabulary is loosely based on chapter 7 of Bien Dit. There are also 10 comprehension/culture/activity questions that follow.
Focuses on structures/vocab:
elle met (elle ne met pas)
Je peux vous aider?
Quelle taille faites-vous?
There are also quite a few numbers (including some big ones), and some prepositions that should be a good review for French 2 students.
It is also very easy to adjust the grammar, vocabulary, people and places in the story to your grade and class level!
I love having students read in class because then all grammar elements are tied to language that is contextualized! Students love them, and we can do so many activities with just one reading!
One activity idea: have students write a short description of their ideal birthday outfit. They could then describe it to another student who has to draw it while they listen.
