"El Camello que se perdio" in the Second Language Elementary Classroom.
Chase, Cida S.
The Hispanic literature of the American southwest contains valuable materials for the Spanish elementary classroom, leading to positive cultural analysis and enlightening the learners about cultural and historical events of the second language community. The story entitled "El camello que se perdio" ("The Camel Who Got Lost") is suitable for fourth and fifth graders with some language training. It provides an opportunity to introduce cultural and historical background information, discuss the various purposes of such a story, and teach a small set of lexical and grammatical items in an interesting context. Several potential class games include a "what is it?" vocabulary review, "yes or no" and "true or false" alternative choice games based on story facts, a verb review game of charades, and a picture guessing game.
