Spanish for Children
The Stories, in French and Spanish, are very short, each with their own video clip, and are used to illustrate and explain topics such as reflexive verbs or vocabulary for family members. A simple introduction (verbs in the 3rd person) introduces Maggie in French + Spanish.
Students encounter ‘possession’ by watching her steal and bury her son Billy’s toys, and learn the simple structure of an oral presentation (verbs in the 1st person) via Billy’s own personal introduction in French + Spanish.
The video clips below, one in Spanish for practice using Ser and Estar, and one in French for practice using ‘il y a + il faut’, are examples of how A Green Mouse stories are used for grammar practice.
