worksheet summary
While I was reading superstitions,I noticed there are a bunch of them that sound anachronistic today, e.g. "Never carry a hoe into the house," or "It’s bad luck to let a fire go out on New Year´s Eve." Why not modernize them a bit? Page 1. includes the nice, original fonts, embedded in the image, upon which I superposed the five sentences and the discussion questions in text boxes in case you´d want to edit them. On Page 2 all of the text is editable, including the title and the introduction. Page three features a vocabulary list. You could start the class with giving just the key words of the superstitions, and letting Ss guess, e.g. "You carry a hoe into the house," "What will happen?" Enjoy! PS. If you have time, let me know if this activity worked in your class, since I just created it, and haven´t tried it yet.) I am open to some suggestions on how to improve it. Bless up, Kisdobos :)
