The chapters are short and use a lot of conversational Spanish vocabulary. I read the narrative paragraphs to the class but ask students to take the roles of the characters and read the actual conversations out loud. I then give my students time to re-read the chapter to themselves and answer the list ofpreguntas/emlisted at the end of each chapter. The student response has been amazing! My kids are so pleased to be able to easily de-code an entire book in Spanish–and having a real interest in Miguelito’s story has really reinforced their vocabulary skills.
