Spanish-English picture dictionary

This picture dictionary provides a quick reference and communication tool for teachers greeting immigrant children who speak little English. Each page includes a clear photograph or illustration captioned in both English and Spanish. Terms are selected to meet the immediate needs of the classroom, and are divided into sections: classroom objects, places in the school, parts of the body, feelings, family, and common verbs needed in school (such as read, listen, line up, and raise your hand). Additional text-based sections provide translations for asking questions, useful phrases, and high-frequency verbs not easily depicted.

Because of the need to provide high-quality photographs, the file is quite large. Please be patient when downloading!
