I love to create short, simple cultural readings that I can use in my classroom. This is one that I use in the first few weeks of Level 1 when we are learning how to greet each other!
My students are presented with the phrase 'dice" in the first few days of class, so it is used in this reading. Other words that are not cognates or learned in the first few weeks of class are footnoted for clear establishment of meaning.
A short personalized activity is included for students to consider how they greet different people that they come across on a typical day.
