Seminoff, Nancy E.
Intended for teachers, this book shows how to use children's magazines to enrich the school curriculum and suggests ways to develop understandings in literature, science, social studies, and math for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. The book illustrates activities with magazines that can help develop study skills. The first section, "Choosing Children's Magazines," contains a chart and descriptions of magazines for easy reference and understanding. The second section, "Getting Started," provides information on selecting and acquiring magazines, displaying magazines, and information about across-the-curriculum activities. The next three sections of the book offer activities in the areas of literature, mathematics, science, social studies, and study skills for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. The final section of the book, "And Finally," contains advice about extending the use of magazines and a list of publishers' addresses and references. Twenty-three reproducibles are provided at the end of the book. (MG)
