Skippyjon Jones

Skippyjon Jones - Judy Schachner

Skippyjon Jones is an adorable story about a Siamese cat who thinks he is a superhero Chihuahua! Skippyjon is the only boy in the litter, and is constantly getting himself into trouble. When he is sent to his room, he embarks on an adventure to save a band of chihuahuas from a huge bumblebee who is stealing all of their frijoles! This is the first book in a series of books featuring Skippyjon Jones, but this one is my all time favorite. It is a delightful book to read. There are several Spanish words in the book, so familiarize yourself with the language, or you just may get stumped! This book also has a lot difficult vocabulary, as well as unfamiliar language, so make sure you introduce those to the class before getting started so they can thoroughly enjoy the book! If you go to skippyjonjones.com, there is a wealth of resources for each of the books in the series. Just go to the link for teachers. In the link, there are printables, curriculum connections, ways to implement an author study unit, a readers theatre script, an English/Spanish language activity, etc..... too many to name. This book could be implemented in all elementary classrooms, just to varying degrees, but it might work best in 1st-3rd grade.
