A Treasure Chest: Stories and Surprises.
Produced by the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program, this workbook is directed toward Puerto Rican American students to provide the necessary involvement to stimulate the pupils' interest in reading by using stories with Puerto Rican characters. The illustrated workbook is designed to be utilized by the teacher for supplementary work on both a group and individual basis and may be taken home to involve parents in their children's reading. Stories and accompanying activities include: "Reinita" (reading a short paragraph, reading a poem, answering questions, finding hidden words, and separating words into syllables); "Guarionex and the Littlest Fish" (reading a story, coloring story characters, finding hidden words in a puzzle); "Pulgarcita Goes to School" (matching words and drawings, alphabetizing, reading a rebus story with drawings substituted for some words, rhyming); and "My House" (reading a two-page play, matching phrases to make complete sentences, completing a thank you letter by filling the blanks with listed phrases, and writing a thank you letter without phrases given).
