Amadito and Spider Woman
In the classroom/library:
I shared this story with the 3rd grade classes at Butterfield Elementary
during their library time.
Before I read, we had a brief discussion about being teased:
What are feelings? Have you been teased before or teased others? How
do you react when you are teased?
I then read the story and students helped complete a web, or a "spider"-web,
as suggested by one student.
Then, we discussed the metaphors used in the story.
