Maybe you’ve seen me demo Circle the Wagons on Señor Wooly’s site with his graphic novel, Billy y las Botas or maybe you’ve never heard of the activity… This is a demo of my class as we wrap up the “Orangután en mi habitación” unit we’ve been studying.
I do this activity a LOT to get my students retelling stories we’ve studied in class.
- Students are not all at the same proficiency level and the gap between highest and lowest widens as they reach upper level language study.
- This is in Spanish so if you teach another language, you can get the idea of what we are doing (make a statement about the image, answer two questions about the image) and my little pop up tips but you won’t know what they’re saying! SORRY!
- I would love to hear feedback but please nothing critical of any our Spanish! 🙂
I encourage you to teach the SDGs with units like Orangután, Homes of the world, Medicina o cura, Mar de plástico, Dame dame chocolate, Comer para vivir, Agua es vida, and Arctic Crime!
