Milo Educational Books & Resources Giveaway

Thus far in August, we have learned how to support our readers' strategic reading behaviors with the Fountas & Pinnell Prompting Guide in Spanish and we have met Attanasio & Associates, a wonderful provider of leveled readers in Spanish & English.

This week, dear readers, you will meet yet another provider of amazing resources for your classroom.  Do the two words "BIG BOOKS" make you swoon?  Okay, well then how about these THREE words: "SPANISH BIG BOOKS"?  Yeah, I thought so!  Well, these books provided by Milo Educational Books & Resources are truly beautiful creations.
In my previous school district, the bilingual coordinator and the science coordinator placed a joint order to provide each bilingual campus with a couple of sets of all of Milo's Big Books related to the science topics that were a part of our PK-5th grade curriculum.  The teachers fought over them LOVED them!

The text in these books is simple but rich and effective.  The photographs and illustrations are carefully chosen to scaffold understanding of high level content.  As I shared these books with teachers in grades PK-5th, every grade level wanted to claim the books for their rooms.  Even though some pages just carry short repetitive sentences, they can still provide a great foundation for introducing content and building background.  These books are perfect for teaching nonfiction conventions and would make great companions to my free Bilingual Nonfiction Conventions Notebook.

So, wouldn't you love to start the year with 2 new big books, 8 assorted small readers, two reading pointers and a bilingual poster (everything in the picture below)?
Visit Milo Educational Books & Resources' website: and leave a comment on this post telling which nonfiction titles would be most useful to you in your classroom.   Follow the rest of the directions from the Rafflecopter below for additional entries!  Good luck!

  1. As always, I am after the best resources for my classroom. This is a great oportunity. Gracias.

  2. Wow!! Big books in Spanish are pretty much the holy grail for bilingual teachers! I'd be happy to have any of them, but since I teach measurement in second grade the "What Do You Use To Measure?" book would be awesome. Also anything concerning Habitats and Animals. Great giveaway, thanks for hosting it!

  3. How great would it be to have these resources for the teachers/students I support in our Dual language program.

    1. I a agree with you, big books and especially non-fiction are rare to come by specifically for our beginning multilingual education program. The five senses and the book on matter would be our first pick since the program just started with one TK and two kinder classes.

  4. The habitats & las abejas would be a great addition to my class

  5. These look awesome! The ruedas y motor and tiempo books would be great resources for my students this year!

  6. GED was originally developed for servicemen who entered the military before graduating their high school. It was made available for all qualified individuals in the succeeding years. The questions on the tests were created to evaluate the knowledge of the test-takers. The exam is divided into 5 topics, which include Language Art: Writing, Social Studies, Science, Language Art: Reading and Mathematics.
