I would love to create a collection of scripts for young /elementary kids (maybe to sell? – I dunno I’ve never sold any content…)
I often base stories off seeds from other stories – mine are often not entirely original. Recently we had a blast with an embedded reading from Carol Gaab’s Cuéntame – I don’t really use the resource as written but mine for stuff I think will fly in class.
It was the one where the teacher walks in to his math class @ Kitty University and calls the cat, “Carla.” But her name isn’t Carla, it’s Farla. Her classmate Marla tells him (teacher) so. Same happens in History class. This time Parla tells him it’s not Carla, it’s Farla. Finally in Music class the teacher comes in and sings, “Hello Carla.” The whole class sings back, “her name’s not Carla, it’s Farla, it’s Farla!” (We do this operatically).
We also retold/asked this story in Hebrew – it was Giraffe University. I had the giraffe’s up front in seats correcting the Professor. They all loved it. If it were a Matava-style script and I had to show targets, they maybe would be: is named, says to her/him, is happy/not happy
I’m gonna start compiling (more original) stories that I use and collect – appropriate for the elementary level and therefore ANY sensibility…
if anyone wants to contribute simple/easy elementary-appropriate stories – no dating / driving n other teen stuff – very simple language and plot – to my project please email me at email@example.com
English & Spanish- or translation of other lang’s
if I get any takers (givers) here, I’ll create/share a Google doc to organize ’em.
