CUENTO PERSONAL DOLL.
Hola, me llamo X�a. Tengo 4
a�itos y vengo a este cole desde
el curso pasado.
He nacido en Almer�a, pero mis
pap�s y toda mi familia son de
Shangai, una ciudad enorme de
China. Yo todav�a no he ido nunca
a visitarla, pero veo fotos y tengo
muchas ganas de conocerla.
Mi pap� se llama Tai y mi mam�
Lin. Ellos vinieron a Almer�a
cuando yo a�n no hab�a nacido.
Los dos trabajan en el restaurante
de comida china que es de mi
Como mis padres tienen poco
tiempo, juego en una habitaci�n
que hay al lado del comedor del
restaurante. All� tengo muchas
mu�ecas y tambi�n una pelota,
porque me encanta el futbol.
A veces me siento en la puerta del restaurante con la abuela y veo jugar a los
ni�os en el parque que hay enfrente. Me gustar�a ir con ellos, pero me da
mucha verg�enza. Como la abuela solo sabe hablar en chino, no les puede
decir nada, asi que yo me quedo mir�ndolos mucho rato y veo los juegos que
Lo que m�s, m�s me gusta es el futbol, pasar la pelota, chutar y marcar goles.
Pero las palabras no salen de mi boca y me pongo roja como un tomate s�lo de
pensar en decirles que me dejen jugar.
As� que en verdad veo el futbol en la tele, porque yo en la habitaci�n no puedo
jugar y s�lo alguna vez mi papi juega en las pista conmigo al bal�n.
Me encanta comer arroz y pasta, pero tambi�n como mucho pescado y algunas
veces pollo empanado y patatas fritas.
En el cole tengo algunas amigas, pero en el patio se van a jugar y yo me quedo
sentada mir�ndolas. A veces Mar�a viene a por m� y paseamos, jugamos a
pillarnos o escucho todas las cosas divertidas que se le ocurren.
En clase cuando la se�o me pregunta algo me quedo callada con la cara roja, o
contesto muy bajito porque no puedo aguantar la verg�enza que me da.
Cuando vemos las letras, yo me las s� todas pero nunca levanto la mano ni
digo sus nombres, no puedo remediar que la voz se quede parada en mi
garganta y que no salga fuera. Cojo cuentos de la biblioteca y casi me los leo
yo solita en casa los viernes, porque comola abuela no entiende las letras no
La se�o quiere ayudarme, me pregunta cosas cuando estoy sentada, me anima
a contarle lo que me pasa... Puso a Mar�a sentada a mi lado. Ella es divertida y
simp�tica y habla mucho, as� que yo la escucho. �Me podr�ais ayudar para que
no me sienta tan mal al hablar a los dem�s?
