Bilingual Fun DVD set
I had to share an incredible resource I found! The Texas State library has a resource for librarians with full lesson plans for incredible bilingual storytimes with different themes. You can read the intro as to why they created this manual here.
For each theme, they list great bilingual books, fingerplays, games, activities, crafts, songs, everything!
For preschool age, they have storytimes about:
Exploring El Mercado
Quíquiri-Mú / Cockadoodle-Moo
Sapos cachones y ranas saltonas / Horny Toads and Jumping Frogs
For toddlers, they have storytimes about:
Hats Around the World
Volando sobre Texas / Through Texas with Wings
Texas quiere decir: amigos / Texas Means Friends
Programs for families include:
Cuentos de Animales / Animal Stories
Exploring Our Festivities and Fiestas
¡Es hora de festejar! / Fiesta Time!
Nuestras familias / Our Families
Las estrellas resplandecen sobre Texas / Stars Shine Bright in Texas
¡Aventúrate! Vamos al Oeste / Be Adventurous: Hitch a Ride to West Texas
WOW!!! Check it out!
I love reading all the fingerplays. They have pictures that they use for flannel board stories. Don't have a flannel board or figurines? I like to print mine on card stock and attach a little magnet piece to them and then use a magnetic mini white board. Or if you have a simple felt board (just a board with felt on it!) you can hot glue a little felt on printed out papers and then stick papers on the felt board. Make sense?
Teachers and parents can use these with their children so easily. It is all right there! I will definitely be looking here for ideas for my immersion class!
