Simplify, Scaffold, Succeed!!

Jennie’s Amazing Embedded Reading in Three Languages!

Jennie from Valdez, Alaska shared this with Michele, who posted it for all of us on Oct. 21, 2010.   This is great stuff.

Jennie said…”I did an embedded reading this week that’s been successful. Here it is in English, Spanish and French. I used it for level 2 and mixed advanced levels. This is in first and second person, mostly because I wrote it for a class that is not my best for direct conversation. I wanted to get the I and you forms more reps. The structures I focused on:

went (first and second person sing. forms)
didn’t like it
yelled at me
came

I took three days with this for Spanish. For French, it will be four when we read the final part tomorrow. We read the first part one day, as a spinoff from talking about the weekend. The next day we read the second part. Day three, we narrated the story from part 2 in class and decided who the characters were. Then I had partners read the last part to each other. It was fun to see them get to the very last paragraph and be surprised by the choice of characters.”

You went to the game. I didn’t go. I didn’t like that day alone in the house. Everyone came to the house afterwards. They yelled at me. I didn’t like it.

Last Saturday, you went to the game. You are a player on the team. I didn’t go, because nobody invited me. I didn’t like that day alone at the house. I wanted to play with you. But last Saturday, I played alone. Everyone came to the house after the game. They yelled at me. My stomach hurt. I didn’t like it.

Last Saturday, you went to the game. You are the best player on the soccer team. I didn’t go, because nobody invited me. You never invite me to play with you. I’ve been only once to a game with you. I really liked it, that time.

But I didn’t like that day alone at the house. I wanted to play with you. But last Saturday, I played alone. I played with your soccer ball, without you. I didn’t like playing without you, but I did like your soccer ball.

Everyone came to the house after the game. You came with your friends. I was so excited that I peed on the floor. They yelled at me when they saw the ball. What’s more, my stomach hurt. You told me “Bad dog!” I didn’t like it.

Tu es allée au match.
Je n’y suis pas allé.
Ça ne m’a pas plu, ce jour seul à la maison.
Tout le monde est venu chez nous après.
Elles m’ont crié.

Le samedi dernier, tu es allée au match. Tu es joueuse dans l’équipe.
Je n’y suis pas allé, parce que personne ne m’a invité.
Ça ne m’a pas plu, ce jour seul à la maison. Je voulais jouer avec toi.
Mais le samedi dernier, j’ai joué seul.
Tout le monde est venu chez nous après le match.
Elles m’ont crié. J’avais mal à l’estomac. Ça ne m’a pas plu.

Le samedi dernier, tu es allée au match. Tu es la meilleure joueuse de l’équipe de football!
Je n’y suis pas allé, parce que personne ne m’a invité. Tu ne m’invites jamais à jouer avec toi. Je suis allé seulement une fois avec toi aux matchs. Ça m’a beaucoup plu, cette fois-là.

Mais ça ne m’a pas plu, ce jour seul à la maison. Je voulais jouer avec toi. Mais le samedi dernier, j’ai joué seul. J’ai joué avec ton ballon de foot, sans toi. Ça ne m’a pas plu de jouer sans toi, mais ton ballon de foot m’a plu.

Tout le monde est venu chez nous après le match. Tu es venue avec tes amies. J’étais si excite que j’ai fait pipi par terre. Elles m’ont crié quand elles ont vu le ballon. Ça ne m’a pas plu. En plus, j’avais mal à l’estomac. Tu m’as dit, «Mauvais chien!» Ça ne m’a pas plu.

Tú fuiste al partido.
Yo no fui.
No me gustó aquel día solo en la casa.
Todos vinieron a casa después.
Me gritaron.

El sábado pasado, tú fuiste al partido.
Tú eres jugadora en el equipo.
Yo no fui, porque nadie me invitó.
No me gustó aquel día solo en la casa. Yo quería jugar contigo.
Pero el sábado pasado, yo jugué solo.
Todos vinieron a casa después del partido.
Todos me gritaron. Mi estómago no estaba tranquilo. No me gustó.

El sábado pasado, tú fuiste al partido. ¡Tú eres la mejor jugadora en el equipo de fútbol! Pero aquel día, yo no fui, porque nadie me invitó. Tú nunca me invitas a jugar contigo. Yo fui a un partido contigo sólo una vez. Me gustó mucho.

No me gustó aquel día solo en la casa. Yo quería jugar contigo. Pero el sábado pasado, yo jugué solo. Jugué con tu balón de fútbol, sin tí. No me gustó jugar sin tí, pero sí me gustó aquel balón de fútbol.

Todos vinieron a casa después del partido. Tú viniste con tus amigas. Yo estaba tan emocionado que yo oriné en el suelo. Todos me gritaron cuando miraron el balón arruinado. No me gustó. Además, mi estómago no estaba tranquilo. Tú me dijiste, «¡Mal perro!» No me gustó.
