This is a short TPRS story for beginning Spanish students. It has a limited vocabulary of less than 25 words, many of which are repeated throughout the story. I have set the age as 5th through 9th grade, but this story could be used with beginning students of any age (I have taught elementary, middle, and high school Spanish).I use this story as part of a unit on weather.

There are so many options out there, many of which can be used to teach a variety of literary elements and lead into interesting discussions and activities.
