The Despicable Man Story Script to target object pronouns

May 23, 2014

Oh yeah, crossing another Spanish 1 unit off the list! Well..the story script anyway. I used this story in my Spanish 1 classes several times, but I needed to fix some glitches before posting it. As I was finishing it up, I couldn't help but think how EASY life becomes when you write your curriculum based on high frequency structures. The script is long because I kept thinking of ways to recycle previously studied structures. By teaching structures that are used frequently in your target language, you naturally find opportunities to use and re-use them in class over and over and over again!

This story script is perfect for teachers that are looking for opportunities to use object pronouns in context--both direct object pronouns and indirect object pronouns!

Download the script in Spanish and in English (click here to learn how I intro vocab) in the Story Scripts folder of the Subscriber Library:


  • esto le parece extraño - this seems strange (to him/her)
  • le da - s/he gives to him
  • devuelve - s/he gives back (returns an object)


Use this story script to preload vocabulary for a content-based unit on superstitions in Spanish speaking countries:
