TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Mata la piñata
Level 1 Reader – Thriller Spoof
Unique Word Count: 100
Diego experiences every 3 year old’s worst nightmare: a birthday party with a piñata! However, Diego and his friends have no idea that the real horror is just beginning! After the party, Diego’s friend, Joel, can’t shake the feeling that the party isn’t over… Something evil has followed Joel home and seems determined to also be part of Joel’s birthday celebration! Will Joel celebrate his 13th birthday…or will this uninvited guest ruin the party…or worse?
The exceptionally low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for advanced beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
