What I did was read the part of the barn to the students. I informed them that they were going to close their eyes and picture the barn in their heads. I read the part aloud a few times and then had the students draw a picture of the barn from what they heard. I also displayed the part on an overhead for the students to review or reread.

There are many animals in the book--would it be possible to ask a language teacher to visit the classroom and teach a short lesson on the animal names in another language, or ask students what they can share with their classmates.
My example had a stuffed animal pig , a plastic spider, and a little doll figurine to rmeind me of Fern.
