Gregorio el gato
by Laurie Dunn
The life and times of a cat called Gregorio.

Oh dear, my Spanish grammar is too old and weak to tell you exactly what this story is good for practising. But even I know it's written in the past. But is it the preterite or the imperfect? You and your students will know and you can follow Gregorio's adventures right to the end.

Señor Dunn y la clase 8B
by Laurie Dunn
Un día en la vida de Señor Dunn

I really like how Laurie has used Storybird here to talk to his class. By adding individuals' names, he has made it super-engaging, drawing his students in.

I'm definitely making a class and lesson-specific Storybird for this kind of starter next week. ¡Muy cool!
