Using Caldecotts across the Curriculum: Reading and Writing Mini-Lessons, Math and Science Spin-Offs, Unique Art Activities, and More.
Intended for teachers of grades K-2, this book aims to inspire students with the award-winning art and stories found in Caldecott books. The book uses Caldecott winners as springboards to provide lively, literature-based learning experiences--from projects that encourage children's own artistic expression to fun and creative activities that explore story structure, build vocabulary, and integrate math, science, and social studies into the reading experience. Each of the book's mini-units features a Caldecott book quote on the opening page; shares information about authors and illustrators; and gives an art lesson, language art links, story extensions, and reproducible student activity pages. The book offers sections on 19 Caldecott winners, including: "Make Way for Ducklings,""The Snowy Day,""A Tree Is Nice,""Saint George and the Dragon,""Owl Moon,""Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears," and "Mirette on the High Wire."
