More Resources El Ekeko

I have loved reading El Ekeko this year!  Of all of the Spanish 1 books that I have used, I found that this one was the richest in culture.  I feel that I too learned a lot about Bolivian culture.  Previously, I mentioned how I introduced the book to give some background.  I also included how I planned a Google Tour and used Google Slides to practice speaking as well.  Here are some more of my resources that I used with the book:

  • On my May 7th news, I included information about a theater festival in La Paz.  This would be great for an introduction as well.
  • Also, I did some PictureTalks with pictures from this Instagram account.  (It is awesome!)  I also was thinking about it in retrospect that I should have searched for the #alasitas2018 hashtag on Instagram to get more pictures for the festival!
  • I used this video with Alasitas to discuss it.  Then, I had students create a miniature item that they would make for the festival with Play-doh.
  • Here are the puedos that I used with my students.  I also had them comparing the first book (Piratas) and El Ekeko.
  • Also, I was going to be out one day, and I left the book at school.  I came up with this general reading guide.  It can be used for any chapter of any book.
  • I used this Quizizz game around Chapter 9.

Hope these extra resources help you as you plan to teach this book!
