Here are some ways to use them!

Print out pages 1-2 and have your students read the story before, during, or after listening.

Print out one copy of page 3 per student or group and have them figure out which event occurred first from each pair.

Let your students' creativity shine! Have your students illustrate a scene from the story including speech bubbles in Spanish. They could choose their own scene, OR, you could break up the story into chunks to make sure you get the whole thing illustrated and use the drawings as a guide for retelling!
