El Chupacabra

When I got a better look I saw it was a Chupacabra exactly as someone had described it.–Juan Callazo, Puerto Rico state police

Right on time for Día de los Muertos is a little story about a boy in search of the perfect pet. That is, if your idea of a perfect pet is a goat-sucker, aka el chupacabra!

This story intended for Level 1 Spanish speakers. We read it as collaborative partners complete with active reading steps, and next week we will act it out as part of a Scooby Doo mystery.

Stay tuned to find out if the legend is real!

    Anyway, scary monster! Killer (no pun) assignment!
