Balada de los dos abuelos

On my website I posted the words to the poem color coded by whose thoughts I take the lines to be.  I cut out all of the lines by color and backed them with matching scrapbook paper.  At the top of a piece of poster board, I put a picture representing the black grandfather, a picture representing the conquistador grandfather, and a picture of Guillen.  I attached the lines of the poem in order to the posterboard in the appropriate space for each person.  If you disagree with my choice of colors for the different thoughts, please feel free to change them to suit your own classroom!  It was a couple of hours work but I enlisted the family to help with cutting, glittering (I’m not sure you can see it but its there!), and sticking!  I also found a youtube video with some pictures that I am going to show after we have read the poem and discussed.  It has some good pictures to represent the poem but weird choice of music! 😉
