TPRS (Teaching the proficiency of reading thru storytelling) Methodology provides REPETITION! REPETITION! REPETITION! of the vocabulary thus enabling the students to really learn that vocabulary and help with spelling in English.
This charming story is rhyming and a mystery that every child can relate to.
"Molly's Mop on Top is a great read-aloud book for young children. The rhyming words, repetition and colorful illustrations, plus a story of a daily ritual many children can relate to (hair maintenance) should make it a favorite."
Planet Zombieland was unanimously selected for the Parent and Teacher Choice Award. This short reader teaches beginning language learners through story telling by use of high-frequency vocabulary. It's highly recommended for any student school-age to adult who wants to learn English, Spanish or French.
"We love that the Planet Zombieland Activity Workbook is open-ended so that students get to continuously write their own ending. It also includes numerous games to personalize the learning at each step for the learner so they remain fully engaged. Highly recommended by the Parent and Teacher Choice Award team to anyone – parents or teachers, teaching English or Spanish with the intent to help students acquire a new language."
El Dúo Fiel
El Dúo Fiel is a beautiful, heartfelt Spanish poem any reader will love and it is especially appropriate for both Immersion and Spanish Literature students. It's a Parent and Teacher Choice Award Winner.
The author, Patricia Lopez, wrote this poem about the lives of her parents, their traditions and their faith during the journey of their lives.
What is very helpful for Spanish language learners is the repetition which allows students to practice and acquire the language while engaging in discussions about the poem.
A comprehension-based reader. (CI) = the book is strategically written with an exceptionally LOW unique word count combined with an unusually HIGH frequency factor which equals the number of times core words are repeated within a text.
Murphy's Mop on Top
This lovely book is a sequel to Patricia’s first book, another Parent and Teacher Choice Award winner, Molly’s Mop on Top!
Molly heads to the rescue shelter and promptly adopts an Irish Wolf Hound dog – with a ‘mop on top’.
At first she laments that Murphy needs a hair makeover to remove the ‘mop on top’ but ultimately discovers that this is what makes him unique!
What we love about this book is how much fun your kids will have reading it, looking at the beautiful graphics and most of all, they will learn how to give back to the community by reading to and playing music to the dogs in the rescue shelter!
Patrica Lopez has done it again and this book is definitely one that dog-loving companies like Petco would love to donate to the local rescue shelter for dogs, and give copies away in the pet stores to teach kids how to love and take care of their dog as well as how to give back to the community!
The values Murphy’s Mop on Top teaches kids are priceless – and all the while they are improving reading and literacy too!
Congratulations Patricia Lopez! Murphy’s Mop on Top Wins the Parent and Teacher Choice Award from HowtoLearn.com.
