Children and Books.
Insights into Open Education, v16 n4 p2-9 Dec 1983
Activities and teaching methods for involving children (especially young children) in literature are presented in order to establish positive attitudes towards reading. Ideas are provided for use with wordless books, patterned or repetitive books, books organized around a theme, and picture books. The activities, each related to specific children's books, include having children dictate group stories, predict what will come next, make their own "look and see" books, put random pictures in sequence, and engage in cooking activities. Further ideas are offered for developing language and imagination. Step-by-step guidelines are given for the following art activities: (1) torn paper art; (2) tissue paper collages; (3) block printing with styrofoam; (4) texture rubbings; and (5) flannelboard figures. The article concludes with a bibliography of 26 children's books which are used with the activities. (DC)
