Shared on the Fluency Matters Comprehension-Based Readers facebook page by Kristy Placido: My Spanish 3 classes are preparing to begin reading “La llorona de Mazatlán” by Katie Allison Baker. Tomorrow they are going to do these two EdPuzzles I made and then I am going to ask them to write a prediction about what the book is going to be about.
