EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! The Telegraph Newspaper is starting a new column called “Bilingual Blabber”. Local students will get a chance to interview classmates and write up a short “getting to know so and so” article to be featured in the column.
•I can ask and tell about friends, classmates, and teachers.
•I can write about someone else including their age, origin, personality, physical characteristics, and what they like to do
For this activity students will review essential questions and use the singular forms of ser, me/te/le gusta, and infinitive verbs by writing questions, interviewing a classmate, recording dictations, and writing/editing/rewriting an article about their friend. They will be practicing their interpersonal speaking and presentational writing skills.
This activity is aligned to the National Standards and fulfills several Linguafolio objectives.
