Just a Minute
Since a new school year has started, I have decided to concentrate on interesting titles for the class room. My first one is called JUST A MINUTE : a Trickster Tale and Counting Book by Yuyi Morales.
First grade teachers, this book works on a number of levels. First, it tells a story.
Here's a sample: "Senior Calavera tipped his hat. What a skinny gentleman! With a pass of his hand he signaled to Grandma Beetle."
Numbers one to ten are embedded in the story and are repeated in Spanish. It's a chance for students to learn to count to ten in English and Spanish.
