Todo es posible: Jennifer Bricker

An article highlighting the story of Jennifer Bricker; an acrobat born without legs

Beginner (Level 1), Novice (Levels 1-2)
4 Pages

Jennifer Bricker is a professional acrobat who was born without legs. Adopted at birth by a family in Illinois, she later learned that her biological sister was none other than her childhood idol and inspiration for pursuing tumbling, Olympic Gold Medalist Dominique Moceanu.

This product contains a 1.5 page reading in Spanish about Jennifer that is written for Spanish 2+. It is written mostly in the past tense and contains several repetitions of the subjunctive construction "querían que tuviera" (they wanted her to have). It is highly comprehensible for students that have acquired high frequency structures in Spanish, even if they have not worked much with the past tense.

The product also contains one page of comprehension questions with an answer key.

Print the reading and stick it in a page protector to add to your class library as free reading materials, use it as a supplement for sports/professions unit or a unit on overcoming obstacles, or leave it for sub plans.

  • Just what I was looking for as a sub plan! I'm glad I found such a fascinating story to help students continue learning Spanish when I have to be absent for a day. Thanks!
