Hats around the World. A Thematic Mini-Unit for Emergent Readers. Grades K-2 [and] Teaching Guide.
Charlesworth, Liza; Spann, Mary Beth
This kit presents a 16-page child-sized book full of photographs and easy, predictable text; a read-along audiotape; and a teaching guide on the topic of hats from 12 different cultures. Although written for emergent readers, the book in the kit includes all the elements of a real book--title page, dedication, author photo, and an easy-to-read "book blurb." The audio cassette in the kit contains the text of the book as well as a song about hats. The teaching guide presents reading strategies to use before, during, and after the book; tips for using the audiotape; several literature-based activities; and lyrics to the song on the audiotape.
