Listen to the story of Caperucita Roja, the mp3 that I have recorded for them.
The whole class writes a story together. I write it on a transparency while students copy it. We look at how to start a story and how to add more details. We try to use old vocabulary as well as the recent vocabulary and tell the setting with the weather. Each class will vote on the best story of the four Spanish I classes. We’ll see which class is the winner next week.
Next week students will take an oral test telling the story of Caperucita Roja by looking at their pictures. They will each be expected to talk for 2 minutes.
Also, students will write a story using recent and old vocabulary. They will have one class period to complete the story, using vocabulary from a list that I give them that day.
