When students have a home language different than the school language, bilingual storybooks and resources are very important. But they’re not always easy to find.
These stories are in PDF format - easy to display on an overhead, or print for school use and sending home. Each story has bilingual text: the target language is above, and the English translation is below.
There are multiple versions of each story, with different target language translations. This allows teachers to make one purchase, but reach their many multicultural students.
Right now I have translations in the following languages:
As I'm able to find more translators, I will re-upload the product with stories in the new languages. My goal is to offer these stories in dozens of languages! Buy the stories once and you'll get as many updates and I am able to procure!
These stories are still basic, but start to include more vocabulary per page.
1. Zoo Animals - 15 p.
This story is about a child’s first trip to the zoo. It contains “I see” statements for each animal, as well as a description (“I see a giraffe. The giraffe is very tall.”)
2. Birthday Story - 13 p.
This story is about a little girl and the guests at her birthday party. This story comes in color AND black & white.
3. New Hat - 26 p. / 17 p.
This story is about a child trying on hats and looking for the perfect one. Built into the story is the element of counting to 10. Two versions of this story; one with ten pages for counting 1-10, one with the 1-10 on one page.
