Simplify, Scaffold, Succeed!!

Shared Stories in Spanish #1

A teacher in another state sent me a story that she and her class had used in a “story-asking” lesson via TPRS.   We read it together as a class and then I asked the students, in pairs, to add words, phrases and/or sentences in order to make the story more detailed and interesting.  I took their additions and created a second and third level to the story.   I sent the new versions back to her students to read and we’ll read the new levels too!!  I’m posting it here so that a) you can see how we made it work and b) you can use the base story or the entire reading.


*The original story-asking activity was designed to help the students and the teacher become skilled in the story-asking format.  Teagan, Chandra, Austin and Bob the characters’ names (chosen by the classes).  Taylor Lautner is a popular young actor known for his work in the ‘Twilight” films, and Austin Powers is the name of a character in the movie of the same name.  Ryan Lochte is a swimmer in the U.S. Olympic swim team.
