Hints to creating an original story.

  • Do not use an online translator.
  • You may look up 1 or 2 words on WordReference.com
  • Work around the story with words you know that can take the place of ones you don’t know

Ex.:  “goes” can be “walks” or  “ runs”  instead.

  • Use colorful,  active vocabulary.

Ex.:  “goes” can be “walks” or  “ runs”  instead.

  • Use descriptive adjectives and adverbs.
  • Use the provided template or map to plan ahead.
  • Use the free vocabulary in the story section of your binder (also found on this page).
  • Avoid English and creating in English then changing to Spanish.  Create in Spanish right from the beginning.
  • Use your imagination.  Don’t limit yourself to situations, because of your limited vocabulary.  Remember you can get around it with other words.
  • Use real people, places, etc.
  • Exaggerate:  Abraham Lincoln come 10 mil tacos instead of El chico come un taco.
