Todo es canción: Antología poética

This delightful book gathers a selection of the most notable poems written by Latina writer, teacher, and passionate advocate for bilingual and bicultural education in the US, Alma Flor Ada. This anthology is a fundamental tool for teachers who rely on imagination, play, and creativity to expand concepts and to enrich students’ vocabulary. It is organized by curriculum themes. Some of the themes are the parts of the body, numbers, vowels, family, animals, the city and the countryside, food, nature, and bilingualism.

Dec 14 Todo es canción, rima y emoción… - Free Resources for Spanish Teachers

By Spanish Classroom 4325 Views No comments

Celebremos las festividades del mes de Diciembre, deleitándonos con los poemas de la reina de la rima, la inigualable Alma Flor Ada. En su libro Todo es Canción, encontrarán una hermosa colección de poemas que pueden ser disfrutados, como dice ella, “por todas las edades.” Entonces, tomemos ventaja del auditorio escolar, y dejemos que los niños reciten sus poemas favoritos.

No olviden representar los poemas de una manera viva, y divertida por medio del uso de un traje, disfraz o un objeto de utilería. En vista de que la lectura y el análisis de los poemas es una noción que se evaluará en los exámenes estatales, es recomendable instruir a los estudiantes tempranamente para obtener buenos resultados en la primavera. Volviendo al libro que acabo de mencionar, el prólogo describe muchos datos históricos y didácticos que seguramente les ayudarán a enseñar los fundamentos de la poesía a los niños. Estoy incluyendo unas tarjetas de preguntas que pueden ser utilizadas para ayudar a analizar los poemas en inglés y en español.  ¡Disfruten!

“Para que un poema sea tuyo para siempre, todo lo que necesitas es disfrutarlo y recordarlo”  -Alma Flor Ada
