We have been discussing different animals in class. i.e. mice, fish and foxes. After reading the stories aloud in both Spanish and English, we talk about what they eat as well as summarize the beginning, middle and ending in each story. Ask your children about some of the vocab we have talked about in class. el zorro-fox, el raton-mouse, el pato-duck. While discussing these stories, we constantly talk about the colors, numbers, and alphabet in Spanish.
Review the body parts.
