Product Description
This worksheet can be used to teach the poem "Sensemayá", by Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén, to students of Spanish, allowing them to practice the language through authentic cultural materials. One side of the sheet contains the poem, with difficult vocabulary words glossed. The other side contains information about the author with comprehension and interpretation questions for the students to answer and a creative follow-up activity. This is a fun poem to read out loud as a class, and students can even beat a drum rhythm on their desks to bring the Afro-Cuban ritualistic elements of the poetry to life!
