I was so excited to learn that my picture book was selected to be part of ColorĂ­n Colorado.  This is produced by Reading Rockets, which is an educational service of WETA, the flagship public broadcasting station in Washington DC.  They selected ONE picture book to develop and present both written and video lesson plans as a model for teachers working with first-grade ELL students on the Common Core Standards, and my book Burro's Tortillas was that book!!!!!  I know that as common core testing is getting close, teachers are so excited to have these kind of resources.  I had nothing to do with my picture book being the one selected, but I was told that people worked on these lesson plans for almost a year.  I love the ones I've watched and read!  I'm attaching a link.  Feel free to pass it along to any teachers you know!

I teach kindergarten and I have several students who are part of our ELL program. I will pass this link on to our ELL teacher. I am sure she will LOVE using your book and all the wonderful resources and I am looking forward to sharing your book with my students.  I love the lesson plans and vocab. cards and the videos are wonderful!  What an honor to have your book selected for this!  Many students are going to have a wonderful time learning with your book and these resources!

Thanks, Sue.  As a former teacher myself, I am really thrilled to see what's being done with my book.  I think they did such a good job of planning worthwhile lessons. 

Special kudos to you for teaching Kindergarten.  I love the little ones, but they are so energetic.  My favorite comment on an author visit to a school came from one uninhibited little boy.  The teacher had put a big poster of me in the library.  I did my presentation and asked for questions.  He was first.  He said, "How come in your picture, you look young, but here, you look old."  His teacher was ready to die, but I thought it was very funny.  I told him that pictures don't show the wrinkles so much!
