Give Me an Idea: A Language Handbook for Teachers. Volume 1 and 2.
Lynnfield Public Schools, MA.
The two volumes of this sourcebook are designed for elementary teachers to help encourage children's creativity. The volumes offer activities and suggestions for language arts teachers who are interested in a variety of approaches to helping children appreciate poetry; do elaborative thinking; understand generic and specific words; understand sentence patterns, sentence expansion, and sentence order; and ultimately transfer these disciplines to their own creative writing. The volumes are divided into sections which deal with grades 1-6. The activities include writing to music, descriptive writing, writing about pets, choral reading, listing similes, reading poetry, illustrating poems, and rearranging sentences. (TS)
