I am Not Sleeping Book – Winner Parent and Teacher Choice Award from HowtoLearn.com
We absolutely love this book and the fact that kids can learn their Spanish and English verbs while singing to the tune of “Are You Sleeping?”? and acting out the verbs in the book.
I am Not Sleeping book is a unique book, written by a speech and language pathologist for teaching English and Spanish verbs to kids in pre-K through middle school!
Kids’ minds are like sponges when they are young, and it’s the very best time to teach them a second language according to all brain and learning research on the subject!
What our Parent and Teacher Choice loves about this I am Not Sleeping book is that it is based on the solid research of TPR (Total Physical Response method for learning a second language). TPR is precisely the way you learned your first language – acting it out and more!
You can play games of charades and many other fun games as your child turns the pages and acts out the verbs! They will love this, totally immersing themselves in their first and second languages, all the while having a blast!
Speech and language pathologist, Lavelle Carlson recommends that you ask questions, “What are you (is she/he) doing?”, “What did you do?” and more to solidify your child’s learning experience.
