More Story Listening Experiment
In French 2, I am still playing with the Story Listening technique Beniko modeled when she was here. Today I used another story written by a group of students, about a fairy and a vampire, who turned out to be rivals for the affection of a girl fairy with a cheatin’ heart and ramblin’ ways.
In French One, we told a story about Boo… a ghost with anxiety that the class created together. This was also the day of my first observation of the year. I am on probation right now since I moved districts last year, so I get observed three times.
In this Spanish One class, we created a story about a chicken wing named Mick, based on a character that a student drew the first three days of school when I was absent to attend a workshop.
In this Spanish One class, we created a story about a cloud named Phillip who is obsessed with his beautiful, beautiful facial hair.
I have been noticing more classroom management is needed these days. The stories are getting pretty exciting and kids need to be reminded that LISTENING is so important!
