On Thursday, October 6, Zulema Moret, Ph.D, came to Burton Elementary to read a story to a classroom of 2nd grade students.  Her visit marks one of the first in a series in which GRPS is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

Moret started her presentation with an interactive slideshow.  Each slide had a Spanish and English wording of an object or activity.  She asked the students what the activity was and to answer in Spanish.  The activities ranged from kite-flying, to riding the subway, to soccer.

After the slideshow was completed, each student was given a book.  They followed along and repeated as Moret read the story to them aloud.

Moret is active in the local Hispanic community.  This is her 7th year teaching as an associate professor at Grand Valley State University.  She has authored multiple books in Spain, including: Cuentos con deseos, El Mono Seafin, and Bubú y Gusy en la Luna

The reading and presentation were filmed and will be aired on channel 27 at a later date.
