This House is Made of Mud/Está casa está hecha de lodo

In the classroom:

I read this book to a kindergarten classroom in Tucson, Arizona. After, reading this book to the students I ask them to draw pictures about the book. Below are two examples of the students' work.


The drawing shows an adobe house in the desert.

Estevan says his picture is about "the house made of mud."

Kilah says her picture is about "a bird, the sun, and the mountains."
The drawing shows a bird flying in front of the sun.
