Here is what I did for Chapter 2 of Todo lo que Brilla:brilla post pic (1)

  • Introduce the vocabulary.  I focused on estaba volando, me agarró, canastas, dejó caer.
  • We acted out a story using these words. Here is the story script. It is super basic!
  • We then read chapter 2.  Reader’s Theater is great for this chapter especially the section where Jose walks, slips, and talks to Emilia in the market, pages 9-10.  The only prop necessary is a banana peel: a fake one or one printed on a piece of paper will do just fine.
  • We then completed the questions in the teacher’s guide.
  • We finished by playing a game of Kahoot.

Here is what I did for chapter 3:

  • Introduce the vocabulary.  My class knew most of this chapter’s key structures so we did the matching quiz in the teacher’s guide.
  • We then completed these personalized questions and picto-frases as an introduction to chapter 3.
  • We read chapter 3.  My class prefers when I read to them so I read it out loud in Spanish and asked some comprehension questions.
  • We then completed the comprehension questions that are found in the teacher’s guide.
