Picture Books in the Language Art Curriculum, K-8.
Diamond, Joan; Beckman, Judy
Language arts activities for use in conjunction with 83 children's picture books are contained in this K-8 guide. Following a list of the 83 books presented alphabetically by author, the bulk of the guide consists of a page devoted to each book. These pages, also in alphabetical order by author, give the publisher's name, the publication date, a synopsis of the story, theme or activity suggestions, grade levels, and activity ideas addressed to the teacher. Many of the pages also have activity ideas addressed to the students and/or a list of materials needed. A title index cross-references the books to one or more of the following activities or themes: choral reading, listening, looking, narrative and creative pantomime, writing, point of view, illustrating, fluent thinking, flexible thinking, wishes, creating your own place, uses for things, the alphabet, and research. A third index categorizes the books according to the activities and themes. Guidelines for using narrative pantomime and for dramatizing stories complete this guide. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (EM)
