Working on a variety of mouth shapes for difficult to pronounce English words, a group of Spanish speaking Kindergarten students in Tina Brennan's class at Blue Ridge Elementary School sing through a range of songs that the kindergarten teacher's created with music teachers. The songs are designed to help with pronunciation of difficult English words in a way that does not associate specific letters with specific sounds. Tuesday, October 11, 2011
