February 2019: Language Treasure

Dear Parents

We would like to introduce you “The Little Dragon Coconut” by Ingo Siegner .                  

Elementary School students in Germany love this dragon and his stories. Our first graders are also familiar with this character, because it is used in the classroom when learning letters. Even our SEL students have heard about him through audio-tapes that they listen to in their groups.

When reading the Dragon Coconut books that can be found in our Elementary School library students can earn Antolin points.

On Youtube you can find videos of the author reading his books: (  Some of the books have also been made into movies.

There is also an outstanding learning app that is geared specifically to SEL students and first-graders. In the app they practice writing letters and numbers, train their memory, solve simple math problems and practice counting and playing with shapes. Look for the „Drache Kokosnuss“ app. The one we are recommending is the one that costs $2.99. Enjoy!!

With questions and suggestions please contact Jasmin Kapustin (
