A Revolutionary Strategy for Teaching Writing to Children How can we shape young students, often just learning how to hold a pencil, into capable writers? This groundbreaking book offers the solution: a clear framework for guiding children to write in any style, from narrative to persuasive. The key lies in using familiar text structures to break down a story into its main components, immediately thrusting students into the role of the writer. Included are 53 lessons, each centered around a classic nursery rhyme, and all the tools you’ll need to lead your students in crafting their own story — in words, pictures, or both. Discover how text structures, already a success in later grades, can also have a profound impact on younger students’ progress.

My First Book of Tagalog Words is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Filipino language and culture through everyday words. The words profiled in this book are all commonly used in the Filipino language and are both informative and fun for English-speaking children to learn. The goals of My First Book of Tagalog Words are multiple: to familiarize children with the sounds and structure of the Tagalog language; to introduce core elements of Filipino culture; to illustrate the ways in which languages differ in their treatment of everyday sounds; and to show how, through cultural importation, a single word can be shared between languages. Both teachers and parents will welcome the book's cultural references, and appreciate how the book is organized in a familiar ABC structure. With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon be a part of the 22 million people worldwide that speak Tagalog!
