From my friends at Spanish Playground, a great FUN and FREE web game to learn Spanish vowel sounds. Thanks Spanish Playground!!!
This list was compiled by kids and interesting because it’s not so different from the Teacher’s Choice list also compiled by the National Education Association. Great minds think alike! This list was tabulated from an online survey that the National Education Association ran from November 1, 1999 through February 1, 2000.
This is from Home and Family Blog. Thank you Home and Family blog for this great list of ideas of How To Make Reading Fun!
Here is a list of one hundred books selected by the National Education Association in 1999 as great reading for children and young people. To help make these books more useful, we have added book and author links to any TeachersFirst resources and lesson ideas.
iPhone/iPad app, Piffle’s ABC Book of Funny Animals, by Once Upon an App is a sweet ABC ebook with that rhymes, teaches the ABCs interactively, and is sung in an engaging and silly way that preschoolers adore.
Young Zeus by G. Brian Karas bridges the gap so perfectly between Greek Mythology and Percy Jackson in this wonderful and mythologically accurate picture book.
This wondrous book is a book without words but no words are necessary because Multi-Caldecott winning author, David Wiesner, tells the story in pictures. And what a story it is! If you take your children to the Jersey Shore or any shore for that matter, and your child is a dreamer or artist, then this is the book to spark imaginations!
My five-year-old son selected most of these funny picture books because they make us both laugh!
Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes by Faye-Lynn Wu and Kieren Dutcher is an appealing CD and book combo to expose younger kids (ages 2-7) to Chinese through songs and nursery rhymes. It would be a great in a classroom as well for units on China and/or Chinese New Year. I highly recommend this book!
