Press Here , one of the three interactive picture books from Hervé Tullet, is a must have for Kindergarten classes because let children’s imagination run wild using only the most basic instruments .

Press Here is a wonderfull opportunity to have a low-tech interactive reading experience with your children and it provides the chance for working with numbers, colours, shapes, sizes as well as stimulate  children’s attencion and develop logical and reasoning skills.

Great book, I’d recommend it!

Unicamente  con presionar o puntiño amarelo, pasar de folla e seguir as instruccións  poderedes iniciar unha viaxe fantástica. “Press here” ou “Un libro”,  un dos tres libros interactivos creados polo autor Hervé Tullet, converteuse nun imprescindibles nas aulas de Infantil porque coas ferramentas máis básicas e sinxelas, permite que a imaxinación dos máis cativos voe libre. Asemade,sen o uso dunha tecnoloxía “punta” , facilita unha lectura interactiva onde os pequenos poden participar en cada páxina e dannos aos docentes e pais a oportunidade de traballar os números, as cores, conceptos como tamaño ou formas e traballar a atención e a lóxica dunha forma amena e divertida.

Press Here version

This book is an amazing source of inspiration for English lessons. I developed some different activities during last term and, even I made my own version in order to introduce the number 1 and reinforce colours and sizes in my 3-year-olds class.

Press Here Collages

A simple coordinating activity of dot collages  was a hit. The kids were very excited to make their own “press here” pages using only dot stikers and a sheet of paper.

Sorting activity

3-year-olds  took turns completing colour sequences by placing red, blue, and yellow playing pieces on one of twenty-five fabulously designed game boards.

Counting to four on Sesame Street

Let’s go on learning more numbers in English.
This time,Feist 1234 Sesame Street version will be the best way to enjoy learning the number 4.

Teaching children to write the numbers correctly can be very frustrating for early childhood teachers!As an English teacher, I try to support and complement the work of the teachers in Kindergarten using English in every day learning situations. I teach my students to write the numbers in school using some easy number formation poems created by Heidi Butkus. As she says, the purpose is to give the children a little rhyme to help them remember how to form the numbers correctly. And for me, it is a wonderful opportunity to improve the English language skills.

This is the number  writing poem we are going to use to learn how to write number four:
