Handout is for the vignette "Un sándwich de arroz" with 45 fill in the blanks with the Present tense and 10 reading comprehension and reflection questions. If you have a small class, at the end of the lesson you can treat them to sandwiches.
OJO I usually bring in a loaf of white bread and in a separate plate "arroz con pollo". The students make their own "sándwich de arroz" and I also serve them mango juice (Goya) which can be found in the Hispanic aisle in the supermarket. Great way to make a connection to the culture. Arroz con pollo is a popular dish. If you need the recipe, please feel free to email me. I also get consent forms from parents.
The Mango juice makes the connection to the book "La casa en Mango Street." The students enjoyed the treat and at conferences several parents told me that Goya mango juice makes it to their grocery list every week after their child fell in love with the taste of it when we had arroz sandwiches in class : ) Please make sure to have consent forms and check for allergies before serving it to the class.
This vignette makes a nice addition to the Global Challenges unit. I take the opportunity to discuss world hunger and even hunger in the U.S.A. This is also an opportunity to create awareness for the Food Pantry program. Students donate canned goods to the school's club and also help stock the town's food pantry.
