PreK–K, 1–2

Activity Type

  • Computer Lab Activities

In the Spanish-language Clifford’s Big Dig! Interactive Storybook (K–1), early readers follow the lovable red dog as he searches for various objects. The storybook challenges students to practice important phonemic awareness and phonics skills, helping them connect sounds to letters and words and enhance their Spanish reading vocabulary.

On each page, students choose a word (from three options) to complete a sentence and then listen to the page read aloud with the new sentence. The illustration also changes to reflect the new word and sentence.


Sample page:

Clifford ve un punto.

Parece grande. Parece verde.

Es  ______. “

Students choose from: una bici, un mono, un balde
