Developing Learning Skills through Children's Literature: An Idea Book for K-5 Classrooms and Libraries. Volume 2.
Watt, Letty S.; Street, Terri Parker
Noting that reading may inspire a child's natural curiosity, creativity, and imaginative behavior, this book presents 54 units of study designed to meet the needs of children's imagination, to use play as a basis for learning, and to explore the lives and writings of well-known authors and illustrators. Each unit in the book identifies objectives to be accomplished by using the ideas presented in the activities. Each unit also includes an annotated bibliography of 7 to 12 appropriate books. Units in the book are arranged in groups of two adjacent grade levels: kindergarten/first grade, first grade/second grade, second grade/third grade, third grade/fourth grade, fourth grade/fifth grade, and fifth grade/sixth grade. Biographical information is given on author/illustrator units. Integration of the curriculum is inherent to all units, and library skills are developed in meaningful situations. A list of seven biographical sources for authors and illustrators, and a directory of publishers, producers, and distributors are attached. (RS)
