In Chapter 2 of Vida y Muerte (but this would also be a great fit for Chapter 3 of !)the anonymous author describes his mother’s murder at the hands of a rival gang. He was just a toddler so he never had the chance to get to know her! This activity is a great way to help students see connections between the characters and their own families.
Give it a try with your students and see who knows their mom best! My daughter is in my class this year and she knew me pretty darn well! 🙂throughthekeyhole
This activity was inspired by a pinterest pin from an artist’s sketchbook! Keep your eyes on Pinterest, there are so many great ideas that apply to language classrooms too!!
