Every. Single. Time…that I receive stories, re-writes, free writes, etc….I am blown away! Simply amazed and reminded of how GREAT comprehensible input works! Kids are acquiring language…and it’s exciting! Here is an example of 2 students work in my Spanish 1 classes. These stories were written after 3 days of circling this ‘Day of Dead‘ video. I gave students 10 minutes to re-write the story to the best of their ability. They were permitted to use the room as a resource -but no personal notes. It’s always amazing seeing the results of CI….not to mention it’s SO. MUCH. FUN!
