Wooly Week with Heritage Learners

So, this was Wooly Week in my Spanish 2 classes.  I decided my Heritage 1 class deserved to get in on the fun! (My Natives 2 / 3 class was presenting projects.) They really enjoyed watching the videos and participating in the activities.  I did level up some of the options to meet them at a level more appropriate for them. We work a lot on reading and writing, which can be kind of tedious, so it is important to remember to let them be kids and have fun too! 

Before we started WW, they chose their favorite Wooly character and created a whole biography and illustrated them!  I am posting some pics below.  

Then, we read Miss Nelson is Missing, an old, but good, book in Spanish. They compared and contrasted Vibra Viral with this.  It was a good comparative exercise.

Finally, I had them come up with a biography for the teacher in Vibra Viral to explain her back story some.  I was able to review some grammar struggles we have with using the preterite and imperfect during this exercise. They had a LOT of fun with this one!  I laughed out loud and was a little confused by the choices of others. 

All in all, it was a great Wooly Week for everyone!
