Jones students author and share their own Spanish books


Sra Pearson's Spanish I classes at Jones Magnet Middle School authored and illustrated children's books for an in-class project. The 35 middle school students from Jones visited Bryan Elementary School to share the books with the three kindergarten classes. Engaging in a heartwarming exchange, the middle schoolers read their stories alongside the elementary students and then assisted each kindergartener in crafting their very own Spanish book to take home. 


“It was such a joy to see my students able to share their expertise with younger students. They often focus on how much Spanish they don't know, but this experience helped them highlight how much they have learned¬†in just a few months,” said Pearson.
