Bundle Description

El Sombrerón is a legend from Guatemala. It's a very popular legend. It's kind of a love story that could never be. As one of my students said "It's similar to Romeo and Juliet."

It's an easy reader. I taught it to my Spanish 2 classes during Hispanic Heritage Month. I simply had to pre-teach some of the vocabulary and use TPR with that class.

I also taught it in my Spanish 3 class. Since they're Intermediate Low to Mid, I didn't have to pre-teach the vocabulary. I first had them look over the legend and circle any words they did not know and to my surprise, they were very little circled. I just gave them the definition for the few that were circled which they wrote on the margins.

As a closing activity, my students colored paper sombreros which were added to the Guatemala wall. My classroom is divided by country walls. On the longest wall I have it divided into four countries and the shortest walls are divided into two countries. As we learn about each country, students will draw and color something for that wall.

It's amazing to visually see the country walls at the end of the year when it's totally covered. Students can easily recall what they learned throughout the year simply by looking at the walls.

Parents are also impressed when they come at the end of the year to share in our festivities. Our end of the year is in May so we have combined it with Cinco de Mayo and have a big celebration in which parents are invited to attend.
