A new Spanish class FREE lesson!

As a teeny bopper, I spent many a slumber party giggling late into the night with my friends and a fresh "Mad Libs" booklet.  We'd come up with the most ridiculous stories and it was so much fun! 

This is a Spanish lesson I've been wanting to work on for quite some time and I'm so pleased that I finally had a break in my summer vacation to devote to this freebie

"The Story Factory: Spanish Word Works, Parts of Speech" is the first in what will be a series of "Mad Libs-esque" activities to help your Spanish students have a fun experience with:
  • memory recall
  • using their existing vocabulary
  • learning new vocabulary
  • verb conjugation
  • reading comprehension
  • pronunciation
  • dictionary work
  • grammar translation
Each lesson begins with a worksheet that prompts students to make a list of Spanish words needed to complete the story (they haven't seen the story yet, so they don't have a clue what they'll be writing about!).

Once students have completed their list of words (students can work solo, in partner pairs or small groups--whichever works best for YOU in your classroom!) they are given the story and will fill in the blanks with the Spanish words on their list. 
Then students will read through the silly story they've created! 
An optional 3rd step is to have students practice their grammar translation on the 3rd page:
If you'd like to have your students practice their pronunciation with this activity, they can practice reading their Spanish stories to a partner, group or to the entire class.
I invite you to download this fun, supplemental FREEBIE today!  If you love it, you'll love the next in the series found HERE!
