3-5 November 29, 2016.  The 3-5 class has been creating, acting out and reading a story using the vocabulary aprende (s/he learns), le da (s/he gives him/her), gordo/a (fat), and va a (s/he goes to).  I'm trying out a new reading comprehension activity called Dibujos Dramáticos (Dramatic Drawings).  I write brand new sentences using the vocabulary from class and students illustrate it, showing their understanding of what they read. Example: Hay una niña gorda. (There's a fat girl.) Lady Gaga le da pizza a su mamá (gives pizza to her mother).
