Day of the dead project
- How do you feel about your final book?
Are you surprised at how much you wrote?
Yes I am happy on how much I have made to be honest I thought that I would have had less pages in my book. What I have never seen was how much spanish vocabs I have had in the story in this project. I thought it would have been smaller words in it then there was to be honest I thought I would have had less words like 90 or 100 word. If any thing I would have a few things that would not get through the book. But it was better than I intended it to be for this project and for the story that I made.
How does the book demonstrate your progress in the class?
Yes it has after making the book I have now understand spanish more than I ever had thought I would have made. When I first was making the book I thought that it would have not done as much writing in the book. But after looking at the book I realized that this was really good and I was impressed on doing it. After seeing the book and looking back on what I was thinking that I would not have that much it really changed my perspective.
What would you do differently if you could go back? How could you improve?
If I were to go back I would have not changed that much but try and challenge myself on getting more writing in. After looking at it then I thought I should go and make more pages and show how much more I should have made. I know that I made at better book but if I challenged myself to try and make more than I could have got a better grades.
2. How was the experience of sharing your book?
Did you get to share your book with any native Spanish speakers?
Yes I had a spanish speaker which I did not know that I thought it was a normal kid not a spanish speaker. Once I saw that it was my jaw dropped and I freaked out it was cool though that I had a native spanish speaker.
If yes, how did they respond?
They loved the book they liked how I made it explore on what is going on and show them where it is. They loved how the pictures were in the book and how the character found a friend. I really loved here good feedback on what I did and how I did it.
What are you taking away from the experience?
That all the kids enjoyed it and how we went out and showed other schools that Animas does this for project. I thought that it was fun but I think it would have been easy if we went to the preschool first then the third grade.
