Jorge T. Cuevas
Jorge T. Cuevas: Latin American History & Geography through
Storytelling (New)
(Grades K-6)
Through the use of storytelling, Jorge covers a lot of details about history, geography,
and the Caribbean cultures.
Climbing for Coconuts is a real exciting story that gives you an idea of what Jorge did
for his very first job in Puerto Rico. This story will make everyone laugh uncontrollably!
The story naturally raises questions about working and what to do when we’re
confronted with dogs we don’t know. Most appropriate for pre-K -3rd grades.
The Shark Killer is a very captivating and humorous story of a Spanish noble's life in
Spain and his nightmarish travels across the Atlantic Ocean to the island of Puerto Rico.
The second main character is introduced in great detail of what a poor fisherman's daily
routine was. Eventually the noble becomes the new governor of Puerto Rico, and he
forces the fisherman to fight a shark. This story becomes alive with the use of an ocean
drum. Jorge sets the scenario to this story by discussing the Age of Discovery and how
the rivaling European countries claimed the Caribbean islands on behalf of their kings &
queens in search of gold, spices, & other riches. Most appropriate for grades 3rd - 6th.
Jorge can also cook fried plantains for everyone to taste, while he tells some food related
stories from his travels throughout Latin America. He discusses the many different
indigenous foods, origins of recipes, and their evolutions from the different Spanish
speaking countries. Everyone always asks for more!
Many times school staff decide to bring many fruits, deserts, and fruit drinks from Latin
America that can be found locally.

EXTENDED CLASSROOM 2013 - 2014
Jorge T. Cuevas
Jorge T. Cuevas: Simon Says in Spanish (New)
(K-12)
You won't believe how fast the students develop a vocabulary in Spanish just
from playing Simon Says in Spanish. Jorge starts out by briefly going over the
sound of the vowels in Spanish. He then teaches them the Spanish names of the
appropriate body parts. The students will pronounce each word as it's
introduced. After each short game, more words will be added. By the end of the
one session, students have learned 25 - 50 Spanish words. For extra incentive,
Jorge does provide some prizes.
