(Sorry about the lack of accents, I don't know how to do them on this computer!)
I normally read this story as a one-off, as a treat, but am sure other teachers could be inspired to do more with it!

This is a very sweet story which the children will not know (authentic) and will adore. The language is quite difficult ( I am not a Spanish specialist and had to look a few words up!) but the story is actually very easy to follow with the pictures and appropriate questioning.

The children will use their deduction skills when you read this story to them and ask them questions like: what is the dragon's name? What is his problem? What is the Spanish word for doctor? Can you spot a colour?

Weather (cold/hot); love and friendship.

The past tense in Spanish; good examples of extended sentences.

This story could be used to focus on a certain sound, "o" for example and get the children to write as many words as they can with that sound in it.

How much time required:
20 minutes to a lesson
