Skinny Skits - Short and Simple Funny Spanish Skits for Beginning Spanish Speakers by Patti Lozano.
Skinny Skits contains 45 short, simple and very sunny skits that are written for the enjoyment of beginning and intermediate Spanish speakers of all ages.
Contents and Objectives
Skinny Skits examines fifteen content units that are universal to all beginning Spanish curriculums. The units, which are referred to as "Acts," include:
- ¿Cómo estás? (introductions)
- El alfabeto (alphabet)
- La clase (classroom and school)
- Los números (numbers and counting)
- Los colores (colors)
- "Tener" expressions (expressing feelings)
- Las partes del cuerpo (body parts)
- ¿Qué tiempo hace? (weather)
- Los meses y las estaciones (months and seasons)
- La familia (family)
- La ropa (clothing)
- Los cuartos y los muebles (rooms and furniture)
- La fruta (fruit)
- La comida (food)
- La hora y la rutina (telling time and daily routine)
Each "Act" contains three skits. Skit A is the shortest and simplest. Skit B is often a bit longer and slightly more complex. Skit C is usually still somewhat longer, and tends to unite content objectives, vocabulary and structures within a more complex dialogue and/or plot. Each skit deals with totally new characters and a new situation. Most skits when performed are between three and six minutes long.
