Story success: Huevos verdes con jamón

If you haven't gotten your hands on Dr. Seuss's Huevos verdes con jamón, you've got to get a copy. In Spanish 1 we're working on te gusta and me gusta(n). Reading this book gets you so many repetitions of those phrases, and the content is understandable, familiar, and highly interesting, so students are engaged. My Spanish 1 students had a great time with it today. Especially if your Spanish is good enough to read the rhymes at native speed after they've grasped them the first couple of times, they get a real kick out of it.

Get one!

What a great idea! I hadn't thought of using this book before. Just saw that they have it in French, too.
