Spanish for Children
The Stories, in French and Spanish, often include two dogs, mother and son: Maggie is Billy’s mother. Resources featuring her single litter of puppies are used to illustrate and explain reflexive verbs and vocabulary for family members. Beginners can start their journey with a simple introduction to Maggie as a tiny puppy, encounter ‘possession’ by watching her steal and bury Billy’s toys, and get to know Billy via his ‘oral presentation’.
The hedgehog story in Spanish below, and the French video clip featuring ‘Il y a + Il faut’, are examples of how A Green Mouse stories are used for grammar practice.
