Bryant, Margaret A.; Keiper, Marjorie; Petit, Anne
Suggesting that a whole language approach can build a foundation that gives all primary students an opportunity to succeed, this book presents nine thematic units (with suggestions for presenting specific skills on a weekly basis) designed to support the skills necessary for creating a strong literacy foundation. Lesson plans in the book are keyed with symbols indicating skills appropriate for emerging learners, typical learners, or advanced learners. Units in the book incorporate trade books, poetry, and music activities for teaching reading, writing, science, mathematics, foreign languages, art, and social studies. After an introduction, sections of the book are (1) September: Insects; (2) October: Signs of Fall and Halloween; (3) November: Madeline Teaches Social Studies; (4) January: Let It Snow in January; (5) February: Love Your Body; (7) March: March of the Dinosaurs; (8) April: April Showers Bring Whales; and (9) May: May in the Desert.
