Using Literature To Help Emergent Readers Develop Concepts in Math, Social Studies, and Science.
Donoghue, Mildred R.
It is imperative that classroom teachers encourage emergent literacy without sacrificing literature or an introduction to some of the basic concepts in the content areas. This annotated bibliography features some examples of titles recommended by "Best Books for Children" which carry content standards recently established by national organizations and/or state departments of education for the lower grades. The bibliography lists four books which are compatible with science education content standards, four books which are compatible with history-social science standards, and five books which are compatible with mathematics content standards. Each annotation consists of a description of the book, a brief description on the concept addressed, and a class activity to be conducted after reading the book aloud. (NKA)
