Bilingüe Book Buddy: Paletero Man





Paletero Man is a colorful book and perfect Summer read! Look for Paletero José throughout the streets of LA and see how community comes together!


Libro-Tivities are academic and fun activities to help families re-engage with bilingual books.

Reading bilingual books can promote biliteracy, inclusivity, and multiculturalism through storytelling, expressions, and illustrations. So pick up a book and keep reading!



3.a Syllable and Rhyming

Materials Needed: Paint chip samples, scissors, glue, tape or laminating plastic

Set Up:

Cut off any working or numbers from the paint chip samples

To save time, be sure your paint chips have pre-cut windows, if not you will need to cut out windows at the bottom of each color.

Glue together - 2 paint chips for 2 syllable words, 3 paint chips for 3 syllable words and so on

Laminate or use clear packaging tape to make the cards dry erase


Use:

Paletero Man is written mostly in English. You can pick out a Spanish word and dedicate each window to a syllable. For example "paleta" would be written pa-le-ta. Have your child draw a matching symbol for each word. Come up with other words that rhyme with your chosen word.








3.b Colorful Math

Materials Needed: Paint Chip Samples, White paper, marker, dice, tape or laminating plastic


Set up:

Cut off any working or numbers from the paint chip samples

To save time, be sure your paint chips have pre-cut windows, if not you will need to cut out windows at the bottom of each color.

Glue a white paper on the back of each paint chip.

Label the parts to create a math sentence (addition, subtraction, comparing numbers, part/whole)


Use:

Role the dice to create a math sentence. Practice saying it in both Spanish and English. You can also gather numbers by counting the paletas on a particular page.






3.c Colorful Paletas & Dramatic Play

Materials Needed: Paint Chip Samples, Colorful popsicle sticks or clothes pins


Set Up:

Cut out paleta shapes from the paint chips (we chose rainbow colors)

Match the same color clips or sticks to each paleta


Use:

As you read the book practice colors by matching the colors to items on a page or finding the same color paletas throughout the book. Talk about the flavors of these paletas. When you're done matching the colors in the book you can create your own paletero cart and set-up a paleta shop as a dramatic play station.
