Reducir, Reutilizar y Reciclar, hoy y siempre

 This is my plan to end our school year remotely adapting my unit to Seesaw and to what my second graders can do at home using this tool. I have done this activity in the classroom and usually started by showing my students this video of the song “Reducir, Reutilizar y Reciclar” by Los Colorados and produced by Jungla Cartoons. I created the conversations based on the video and adapted them for my second graders. 

By Los Colorados

Over two years, I have collected some videos for the conversations with former students but I cannot share them with you because of our school’s policy. I usually present the first part of the song and one video with a conversation, right after. Then, I have a student demonstrate the conversation with me and then I pair students up so that everybody gets to practice. Over Zoom, I followed the same process with the first conversation and tell students that they will be using Seesaw to practice and illustrate each conversation but will have the chance to pick one to act out and videotape for their independent work. That creates more excitement on their part and curiosity as to what the conversations can be like.

I am using one lesson to address one of the Rs so that my students can work independently on the Seesaw activity. I display the activity and the conversation on my screen and assign time for students to practice in pairs. The Spotlight option of Zoom makes it easier to focus on the students playing the roles. The Seesaw activities for Reducir and Reutilizar are set up in a similar way. The activity for Reciclar is a project that I demonstrate over our Live class, and then students do on their own. My focus is on the identification of recyclable materials and their creativity.
