Photographs are one of the best ways to provide a context for Spanish language tasks.  With the visual support provided by the photo, children can understand Spanish words and structures that they might not otherwise recognize.  Also, text supported by pictures can reinforce vocabulary and verb forms that children already know.

The following link will open a series of five photographs.  I have provided a short, simple sentence to describe each photo, and a question about the photo.  Of course, you can talk about the photos with your child in many ways. The pictures will make the Spanish that you use clear. The text that I have provided reinforces the verb tener.
