Vocabulary for the story "Los chicos" written by Ana María Matute with visuals to facilitate comprehension. Visuals are free domain: Wikimedia Commons y Corbis.
I like to pre-teach vocabulary prior to reading the story. This story is a great teaching opportunity for the students to discuss bullying.
I have students volunteer to read aloud to the class. Afterwards they break into smaller groups to discuss themes in the story. Students then share their discussions with the class that lead to a discussion of bullying. The students are quick to make the connections to bullying and many are eager to discuss the topic.
We take this opportunity to share if they have been victims of bullying or have seen others victimized. Then we discuss what we should do if we are victimized by bullying or are witness to a bully incident. We also discuss types of bullying in order to allow students to comprehend that bullying can also be isolating a person.
For Anti-Bullying weeks I have students create posters in Spanish to display in the classroom and also in the cafeteria with my administrator's approval.
Here's a link for a template to create posters:
I also found great resources for Anti-Bullying Week online. They're in English but I have students work with a partner to translate them into Spanish. Yet another teachable moment : )
FL.6-12.7.1.IL.A.A.1 - Identify the main idea and some supporting details when reading.
FL.6-12.7.1.IL.A.A.3 - Infer the meaning of some unfamiliar words when used in familiar contexts.
