Parents in the English class at Mejorando el Futuro~Making a Better Future read the story of The Little Red Hen. After discussing the story, parents shared how their children help at home.  Each family received a copy of the book in Spanish to read at home  They invited their children to draw pictures of how they help their family.  With their children's permission parents brought the drawings to class.
