As a culminating study of fairytales, third grade students in Jessenia Morales’ Dual Language Program class at Brookhaven Elementary adapted the popular tale of “Little Red Riding Hood” into puppet shows. The puppet shows were performed for K-2 students enrolled in the dual language program and were written and acted out completely in Spanish.

Ms. Morales explained that the 14 students worked collaboratively in groups to create their own script, puppets and set. The activity not only entertained school peers, but built language, communication and confidence skills. 

The District’s Dual Language Magnet Program housed at Brookhaven Elementary School officially opened in September 2018 and now allows all district students beginning in kindergarten the opportunity to learn core subjects in both English and Spanish, becoming bilingual and biliterate through fifth grade.
