Read the nominated book, “Under the Mambo Moon” with your students. In a fun technology center, you can upload your iPods with a free app called Skyview at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-free-explore-universe/id413936865?mt=8. Skyview allows you to show where the moon and sun are in relation to your classroom and shows everything else in the sky.
Get your students out of their seats and borrow some Latin music to play some mambo, tango and merenge tunes. Have your students read the story with an adapted readers theatre script from the Bluebonnet committee website http://texasbluebonnetaward2013.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/mambo-rt.pdf
The poetry in your readers theatre will be a sure hit with your students.
