Fourth graders help PKers with Spanish voacbulary

In Spanish class, fourth graders have been learning animal vocabulary and the difference between Spanish’s two versions of the verb “to be,” ser and estar. To help them learn when to use each verb and practice new vocabulary, students created their own version of the beloved children’s book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You see? Fourth graders chose a habitat and an animal that would live in that habitat before creating their book, incorporating what they have been learning in class. In the meantime, pre-kindergarteners have been learning the basic animals as part of their Spanish classes. For the final step of this project, fourth graders read their books to their Little Friends in pre-kindergarten before giving them the books as a gift.
