This is a sample of a unit that I have created to celebrate Carnevale with my English-Italian bilingual children.
The central them of the unit is the traditional tale of how Arlecchino, a poor little boy who could not afford a costume for Carnevale, got to wear the most colorful costume of all. Since I could not find a good retelling in English of this tale, I have tried to write one myself. I am including the story in this free sample hoping that I will get some constructive criticism and advice. If there are some changes that you would like to have made, please hold off the negative ratings and just contact me instead :)
**UPDATE**: The full unit is now up:
It includes some worksheets and activities to practice the colors in Italian, plus a game to reinforce the correct gender agreement between colors and nouns in the Italian language. FREE for a limited time.
