  1. Martina; Last semester I found this activity towards the end of our semester. It seemed interesting and eventhough the students were, what I considered, ahead of this since I did some LICT stories, the students really enjoyed this activity and the one that follows. I am starting a new semester and I see that you recommend Carol Gaab’s First Two Weeks. HOw do you incorporate this activity and Cierra la Puerta with her first two weeks?
    Your blog has been so helpful as I begin my journey into TPRS.

    1. Nancy, Glad that you are finding these activities useful! I don’t mix these with Carol’s First Two Weeks; I use these (pulled from her FTW) instead of it. I need to slow down each of her daily lessons from that packet because of my students’ age and our short class periods. If you want to continue with her article but with a similar rhythm to my adaptations, just slow down each of the daily lessons that she outlines and expand them. Hope that helps 🙂
