Sharing Stories/Compartamos Cuentos

Parents and grandparents have the best stories! Send kids home with this diversity worksheet, asking them to listen to a story from an older family member. Youngsters draw a picture of the story as they hear it, and then tell the class about it the next day. The instructions are provided both in English and Spanish. Families will enjoy this assignment as much as you will!
