Several usage notes are in this Spanish-English Dolch Book. |
Enjoy the play on words in English with the verb "fly" and the noun "fly."
Sometimes readers reverse "was" and "saw." Visit the page on this site about correcting reversals.
Discuss the difference in entonces and después as the story describes the quick movement of the fly.
In English, we use "he" or "it" to refer to an animal when we don’t know the gender. The general term "horse" is referred to as "he" or "it." A mare is "she." A stallion is "he."
The fly is a good example. In English, the fly is "he" or "it" unless we examine the fly under a microscope and learn it is female. In this little tale of the fly, help students notice that "ella" is translated as "he" instead of "she." "La" is translated as "him" instead of "her."
