Lucia La Luchadora

Posted in apps, picture book lesson, reading skills, and second grade

Second graders had fun in the Jackson Library today with Luca la Luchadora. We read the story about how a little girl’s abuela encourages her to stand up to playground bullying by showing her a vintage luchadora costume and telling her about the legacy of the luchadora’s power. When Lucia wears the costume, she not only stands up to bullies but also rescues Coco the puppy when he is stuck on the slide. By the end of the story, she realizes that she doesn’t need a mask or costume to stand up for herself. We identified causes and effects in the story and created a Luchadora or Nino mask from Nino Wrestles the World. At the tables, they chose from either a Lucia mask or a Nino mask and decorated it. They played a fun luchadora mask game on the iPads. Thanks to Shawne Briggs, Sheffield Primary Librarian  in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, for ideas for this lesson.
