Ready-To-Go Embedded Reading

Earlier this year, many of the 8th grade girls in our school applied and were selected for a Young Women in Science program at the Teton Science School.  It sounded like an amazing experience.  However, it left me with one class of 5 students.  I had no idea what to do with that class, so I looked around on the wonderful internet and found an embedded reading + a video.  However, I wanted to make it a little fancier, with comprehension questions, and targeting the structures that were causing my students some frustration.

Target Structures:

  • (no) puede bailar
  • tiene que
  • le ayuda

Yep, these structures are from the Castellers de Terragona unit from The Comprehensible Classroom. However, I found that the students needed MORE REPS!

So this is an embedded reading based off of one from  The original is linked here.  Here's the video:
