Literature-based workshops for language arts : ideas for active learning grades K-2 by Kathy Morrison( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended for teachers who want to integrate high-quality children's literature into the language arts curriculum. The illustrated book provides a host of small-group workshops for children in kindergarten through second grade, planned around storybooks they love. Each workshop suggested in the book is geared to specific High/Scope elementary key experiences and includes a description of the activity, a materials list, instructions for teachers and students, follow-up activities, and modifications for children with special needs. Each of the five sets of workshops has a special focus: teddy bear books, alphabet books, and the storybooks "Monster Mama, ""The Napping House," and "Amelia Bedelia." A whole-group lesson at the beginning of each set of workshops introduces students to the books and activities in that section. The workshops themselves--each built around a particular storybook--provide many opportunities for children to make their own books, write in a variety of formats, graph and chart story information, create two- and three-dimensional artwork, write songs, and engage in many other active learning experiences.
