While reading How Tia Lola Came to Stay, some students finished reading selections of the book quicker than others. This was a fun activity the students enjoyed working on when they finished reading.
Students have to use context clues to translate Spanish phrases. Students can learn new Spanish words. Students can research a topic of their choice relating to the text. Students also have the opportunity to learn more about the author.
This could also be used as a center during guided reading.
