5th and 6th Update: “Isabela captura un congo”

For 5th and 6th graders, we will be dedicating our 4th quarter to reading Isabela captura un congo. The story is completely in Spanish and it takes place in Costa Rica. We will be acting out scenes, discussing culture and comparing/contrasting our lives to the life of Isabela, along with many other fun activities! 

I also forgot to give credit to all my students for their hard work creating their own monsters! We used the vocabulary “soy” (I am) and “tengo” (I have) along with body part vocabulary and descriptive adjectives.

Here are a few examples: ImageImageImageImage
