Escritura de niños: elefante funky


Hace poco hice un ejercicio de escritura con mis estudiantes de segundo grado. El ejercicio comenzó con un cuento oral colectivo en inglés. Cada estudiante añadía una oración. Luego de terminado les pregunte qué palabras del cuento les gustaría saber en español. Contestaron:

1.elephant-elefante

2.funky(difícil de traducir)- colorido? nítido? loquillo?

3.book-libro

4.clothes-ropa

5.litterbox-(humor escatológico) caja del gato? (mi versión soft)

Con este vocabulario les pedí entonces que escribieran un micro-cuento. Estos fueron algunos de los resultados:

.There once was an elephant going to a bookstore. The elephant was so funky. It ran around the bookstore and steeped on a bunch of people. He acted like a crazy person.

.Once there was an elephant. He was wearing funky sunglasses, a funky skirt, and a crazy shirt! He started to walk around the barn. All the animals got jealous so they got the same kind of clothes.

.This elephant was funky because he carried books on his head. He knew a beautiful girl. The elephant didn't love litter boxes.

.Once there was a funky beautiful girl. She had a pet elephant that slept in a tiny litter-box and she slept in books.

.One day a big fat funky elephant went to a party and started knocking down books! Then he took of his shirt and started waving it like a crazy person and did those kind of things for the rest of the party.

.One day an elephant was walking and his friend the frog was having a party. So he went but he didn't know what to wear so he put on a funky outfit and when he arrived at the party he got his nickname the funky elephant.

.Once there was an elephant in a litter-box. He was happy there. one day he saw a cat walking. The cat said, hey that's my litter-box! So the elephant said why don't we share the litter-box, so the cat climbed in and they lived together ever after.

.Un elefante en la caja del gato at 12:00pm.

Muchos de estos cuentitos me dieron pavera. Recordé como a los siete años me encantaba también el absurdo, la tontería y los cuentos con animales. El humor proviene con ellos de la desproporción y los aspectos antropomórficos improbables.

Me gustó mucho la imagen repetida de un elefante algarete en una fiesta y en una librería (que se comporta como una persona loca, por cierto), el gato como roommate del litter-box y la niña que duerme en los libros.

Me pregunto qué hubiera escrito a esa edad. A saber.
