Dialogos de Marioneta ~ Puppet Dialogues GRADO 4

These past few weeks in Grado 4 we integrated our language skills with our artistic talent. We made very creative Marionet Puppets in Art class and decided to bring these wonderful Marionetas to life by writing dialogues and recorded them in Spanish, in Spanish class. Many of the personal interview questions that we’ve learned earlier we integrated into the dialogues along with describing their personalities and physical characteristics/parts of the body, special abilities and/or special powers. Many of the Marionetas were based on the Greek Mythological unit that we studied in our Unit of Inquiry. We hope you enjoy viewing them and por favor, feel free to leave unos comentarios!

los CUENTOS en forma de video … VIDEO STORIES

For the past couple of weeks the fifth grade Spanish students have been working either individually or in pairs on video-story telling projects.

The objectives of this project for students were:

– to utilize prior Spanish vocabulary and skills to create a basic story
– to incorporate geography and mapping vocabulary
– to include story telling elements – an introduction, small dilemma and resolution, character description, and conclusion and …
– to use proper pronunciation while acting out the story

The criteria: Title and authors, written story-line, recording of story, at least 6 pictures/drawings, list of newly introduced vocabulary, and an ending.

Students worked very hard on these and now have a new appreciation for the hard work and effort that goes into creating a video story. The entire collection of video stories can be seen by clicking here. Look for student comments and feedback at the bottom of the videos.

Enjoy-Desfrutan!! Sra. Tamara

This is an example of a story we are presently working on in Spanish in 4th grade. This is an EXEMPLAR, an example for the students to follow when creating their own stories. This project will be written, recorded and created by the students and is one that integrates the skills they just learned with Mr. Mikey in IT class. Coming soon will be stories made by students. Enjoy! Sra. Tamara
