Caperucita Roja

image

imageEstuvimos trabajando con dos versiones diferentes del cuento “Caperucita Roja”: la de Charles Perrault y la de los hermanos Grimm en las clases de lengua. Nuestra profesora nos dio dos consignas para hacer en nuestro primer día BYOD.

a. Consignar los rasgos característicos del cuento maravilloso que aparecen en ambas versiones de “Caperucita Roja” (la de los Grimm y la de Perrault).

En ambos cuentos existe lo sobrenatural, existen seres maravillosos, no se respetan las leyes de la naturaleza (hay un lobo que habla), y nadie se sorprende ante lo extraordinario (Caperucita no se sorprendió al ver al lobo hablar). Ninguno de los dos cuentos presenta coordenadas espaciotemporales, hay un escenario prototípico (el bosque) y un espacio indeterminado, sin un tiempo determinado.

b. Dar una razón que permita explicar las diferencias que se presentan entre ambas versiones. Tener en cuenta especialmente el fin de cada cuento y la moraleja que se pretende transmitir.1)

En la versión de Perrault la moraleja es que no hay que hablar con extraños, y el final es mas duro para la chica inocente y no para el malo. En cambio el cuento de los Grimm es un poco más adaptado para los chicos ya que no es tan agresivo y lo malo le pasa al villano. La moraleja es distinta ya que el mensaje que transmiten los hermanos es que las chicas inocentes no deben confiar en un hombre.

Games at Twilight

Our teacher Pato asked us to write a summary of the story “Games at Twilight ” by Anita Desai.

The story is set in India, in a family’s house in a day that was so hot that it suffocated them.
The characters of the book are:
Ravi: he was one of the youngest ones. His dream was to be a winner to show his older brother Raghu, and his other cousins that he could beat them.
Mira: one of the older cousins that acted like a mother, indicating the kids what to do.
Raghu: the oldest boy. He believed that he was superior to the other ones because he was tall with long legs, a very sportive kid.
The cousins: they liked to play outside like any kid. Their names were: Anu, Manu, Ravi, Raghu, and Mira.

The rising action of the story is when the kids want to go outside to play but they could not because the high temperature. When finally their mother, Mira, let them go they were very excited and they decided to play hide and seek.

Ravi, one of the kids, was taking the game very seriously, so he decided to hide in place where no one would ever find him, the locked shed. Here starts the climax, when Ravi got very scared because of the darkness and insects that accompanied him in the room.

The question that was running through his mind was if he had to go and touch the den, or to stay there. When he finally decided to go outside, he run very fast to the den, being proud of himself, shouting “I won, I won”, but all of the other kids didn’t pay attention to him because they were playing another game. To finish the story, Anita decided to put as the falling action, the poor kid laying on the grass, covering his face with his hands and thinking how could his family forget him for so much time

summer

Our teacher Daniela Barra asked us to describeour favorite picture of the summer.

How I miss summer! Those sunny and windy days on the beach, where I could sleep, sunbathe and swim without any problem, where I could meet my friends all day long and meet new people, play the guitar and drink mate watching the sunset. I went to Miramar, a place in which I feel like at home. My friends made this summer the best ever, and this picture shows my happiness. I was taking the picture with one of my best friends while we were singing and playing the guitar in the afternoon, doing our beach routine. This photo makes me want to go back and replay my whole summer! I spent an incredible time in the place I like the most.

Crossword Connection

In our first language class we met our new teacher Daniela Barra. Also we made a crossword with our names, connecting things of ourselves. Here is the picture of the “crossword connection”.
