A story, a reading and slides for Movie Talk based on a pet store, annoying talking animals and big ears. Materials are in Spanish.
Un mascota nueva: This story script can be “asked” in class. The story involves a man who is tired of his current pets and wants to try a bird as a pet. Unfortunately, the birds he brings home cause many problems. Key terms: fue a la tienda de mascotas (went to the pet store), quería comprar un pájaro (wanted to buy a bird), lo llevó a la casa (took it home).
El pájaro hablante: This reading tells of a pet store worker who nurses a sick bird back to health and gains a best friend. However, the bird’s jealousy becomes a problem when he tries to maintain a social life with the ladies.
Se vende ratón: Freeze frame slides and a collage for Movie Talk with an animated video called “Mouse for Sale”. Special thanks to Christy Miller for suggesting the video and helping to plan Movie Talk. Check out here extensive database for Movie Talk videos here:
