El Nuevo Houdini, Chapters 1&2

January 27, 2014

Last year, I made reference to a Pingu clip that I MovieTalked as an anticipatory set for Chapter 2 of El Nuevo Houdini, but I never posted the clip! Silly me! Thanks, Nancy, for reminding me to put it out there! The episode is about what happens at home when Pingu's parents go out for the night to a concert: As you can see, it gives you many opportunities to use key structures for the beginning chapters of El Nuevo Houdini and to create a parallel story and hypothesize future events. Pingu's parents explain rules to the penguin children, and then off they go, care-free to their concert. Meanwhile, the little penguins get into all sorts of mischief. My students had a lot of fun with the clip! If you are not familiar with MovieTalk, read more about this great strategy here.
