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.

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:

The First Day of Winter

índiceLast Friday, we could see the first snowflakes falling down. It was an amazing and freezing day!!! So, I decided to take the opportunity to present  a new book called “The first day of winter” by Denise Fleming to my kindergarteners which helps us review numbers and colours and introduce some winter clothings.

O venres pasado, puidemos ver as primeiras folerpas de neve. Foi un día incrible e xeado!! Asi que , decidín aproveitar a oportunidade para presentar aos nenos de infantil un novo conto titulado “O primeiro día do inverno”, da autora Denise Fleming, o cal nos permita repasar os números a as cores e presentar algunhas palabras relacionadas coa roupa do inverno.

Let’s count from 1 to 10

Seven Steps is a simple counting song for young children. You can use it to count objects, march around the room, or just sing and clap.

This is my children’s favourite song to learn numbers. They love it! And you might add  a few more actions to make it funnier !!!!!


Here is a picture of a number. For example, the number ‘1’. How do you spell this number? It’s o-n-e. Can you hit o, n and e on the balloons as they go past? You must hit them in the right order!
Remember – you have three lives for each number!

Neste xogo aparecen debuxos de números. Por exemplo o número 1. Sabes deletrear este número en inglés? Podes disparar  os globos cando pasen para escoller as letras que necesitas? Recorda que tes que explotar os globos na orde correcta. E sobre todo non te esquezas de que só tes tres vidas para cada número.
