Holy guacamole! Skippyjon Jones is 10 years old! He's fearless, he's fun, he's a hero to all! Enjoy a special edition of the book that launched a thousand Chimichangoes with a note from author Judy Schachner about how the character came into being. There's a photo of the real Skippyjon Jones, and even a reversible jacket with El Skippito in his mask-ito on the other side. So hold on to your mice and beans – this book is the fiesta you’ve been waiting for!

AlaMich What‘s the matter with Skippyjon Jones?? 2mo
WanderingBookaneer @AlaMich : It depicts stereotypes of Mexican culture. I‘m just surprised it was challenged enough times to make the list. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @vumblereads yep. “Potty humor” and teaching kids to misbehave. 2mo
LibrarianRyan I‘m surprised Tango makes three has fallen off, and after some national uproar this title is not on this list 2mo

published 2003. I really loves the use of language in this book. The language in this book make it really funny for young children to read because there is fun interactive words and clapping in the book!

SkippyjonJones Cirque de Olé written and illustrated by Judy Schachner is one of the many books in the series! It‘s is fantasy picture book that is a New York Times Best Selling Series. This book goes in to another one of Skippy‘s many fantasies this time he is in a circus! These books are such a fun read that even my boyfriend gets a kick out of them!! This book lines up perfectly with the ESOL strategy 24 because there is Spanish in the book!

Gabylaurel10 This book also works well with 2.4 because it promotes understanding across languages! This book would be great to use as a read aloud in a classroom. This author would also be great for an author study in the classroom! http://www.skippyjonjones.com/teachers.php #UCFLAE3414SuB18 10mo

Skippyjon Jones is a E. B. White Read Aloud award winning book written and illustrated by Judy Schachner. I would consider this book to be both P and F because of SkippyJon Jones the talking Siamese cat along with the words all rhyming together and the book having such a fun rhythm to it. I think this book would be perfect for RA. I didn‘t know it had a lot of Spanish in it so it would be perfect with Spanish ESOL students.

Gabylaurel10 Again I think this book would be great with teaching some Spanish words! http://www.skippyjonjones.com/teachers.php There‘s an activity on here that helps students match the English to the Spanish word. This is perfect for UDL principle 8.3 of building a community because it allows for ESOL students to feel comfortable. It would then work really well with the ESOL strategy 12 because it is teaching native speakers Spanish and nonnative speakers 10mo

This F book won an E.B. White Read Aloud Award, and will be a wonderfully hilarious read aloud. This book is about a Siamese cat named Skippy Jon Jones. While in time out in his room, Skippy Jon Jones imagines himself to be a chihuahua and goes on this adventure through the desert of Mexico with other chihuahuas. EL 24, incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum.

JayaJ UDL 2.4, promote understanding across languages. This is a great way to incorporate this book in the classroom tps://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/skippyjon-jones-lesson-plan/

DrSpalding Good for you for recognizing that 2.4 applies nicely to this particular book and author. Try to be sure that your resources hyperlink. There is an error above. 11mo

This F picture book by Judy Schachner can be used as a RA, RT, and CR. This Siamese cat called Skippyjon Jones likes to imagine himself as other animals. In this book he took the role as a chihuahua and was now called El Skippito. Such an entertaining book with a opportunities to chorally sing and even has some Spanish words. This is only one of many books about Skippyjon Jones. In the link you can find a guide with other books and how to use in

Floribelg your classroom. There's even a RT and a poetry lesson. http://www.skippyjonjones.com/downloads/Skippyjon-CC.pdf it's necessary to use UDL 2.1 to clarify the vocabulary that's in Spanish and how some of the words aren't real words. ESOL 20 of listing the important words can be found in the link on how to create a word wall. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

Skippy Jon Jones by Judy Schachner won the EB White read aloud award, it is a fantasy picture book I will use in my classroom for a read aloud. A Siamese cat causes havoc in his household as he is the only boy of the family. Skippyjon goes into his closet and is off into another world, this time it was to Mexico where he meets with Chihuahuas who are battling a huge bumblebee. Will Skippyjon Jones be able to help the Chihuahuas?

ChristinB I will utlize UDL 6.4 enhance capacity for monitoring progress. I will use ESOL strategy 24, incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum, as the book has a lot of phrases in Spanish. The website http://www.skippyjonjones.com has a link to all the Skippyjon Jones ipad apps that I can use in my classroom to make Skippyjon come to life. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

Skippyjon Jones is a picture book written and illustrated by Judy Schachner and is one of my favorites! It follows a little chihuahua and his crazy life! This book also incorporates some spanish words which is also an awesome tool for the classroom & a RA.UDL strategy 2.4 Promote understanding across languages and EL strategy 11. Place language in meaningful context and 45. Use Venn diagrams to contrast and compare activities would work very well.

Jbombardiere It‘s really awesome to see how many books incorporate the spanish language! Great for learning in general but also helpful for esol students. 2y
kenyanellie I have definitely fallen in love with Skippy Jon Jones and his wonderful adventures! I love that these books incorporate spanish language that make these stories fun for ESOL learners as well. (edited) 2y

This modern fantasy(F) incorporates Spanish phrases and culture, an underlying theme of being true to who you are, & features a great deal of humor as Skippyjon Jones thinks he's a chihuahua rather than a Siamese cat. The series (18 books) is great for cultural diversity and offers audio books for EL support! Fabulous read aloud activity including acting and props:http://www.skippyjonjones.com/downloads/Skippyjon-ReadersTheater.pdf #UCFLAE3414su17

melissaallam This sounds like it would be an awesome book to read if you have Spanish speaking students in your classroom. They'd probably appreciate you incorporating their native language into a lesson! 2y
DrSpalding Wow, I had no idea she had already written 18 in the series. I read SkippyJon Jones Mummy Trouble to my niece this weekend. She has the plush character and loves the stories. Yes @melissaallam stories with vocabulary from other languages or written in other languages are excellent additions to your classroom library. 2y
Ashleywwolfe @DrSpalding - the plush!?! Ohhh need that for my "reading buddy bin" I'm creating! 2y
DrSpalding I ❤️ the idea of the reading buddy bin! Woo hoo! 2y

I really enjoyed this animal fantasy book! This book tells about a Siamese cat who think he is a Chihuahua and his adventures in a dog circus! I LOVED that it incorporated Spanish within the text, making it a learning opportunity for kids and a familiar language for our Spanish speakers! The official website for this character provides multiple resources for teachers: http://www.skippyjonjones.com/teachers.php #UCFLAE3414sp17

DrSpalding An excellent example of animal fantasy! Children love Skippy Jon Jones! 2y
AlanaA I love this book! I've always wanted to learn how to talk in a Spanish accent so I can read it to kids in a fun voice like my teacher used to do for me (: 2y
