My First Latino Scene Book builds on acting skills kids have developed in the first three monologue books in this ground-breaking new collection for K-3 students. Having successfully tackled the monster that is “the monologue” students are ready to work with each other in dramatic scenes. This collection of fifty two-person scenes is chock-full of conflict, friends and family, and everyday situations that children can relate to spending bus fare on a bake sale, eating too much, taking dares, pretending to talk with animals. At the beginning of each book, are acting guidelines to help children play the scenes effectively. Questions at the end of each scene encourage them to delve deeper into the situation and the characters, sparking interesting classroom discussion, illustrations throughout for students to color. As with the monologue books, M. Ramirez weaves commonly used Spanish words and idioms in to essentially English material..
