Picture Books That Teach Concepts in Science, Math, and Social Studies to Beginning Readers.
Donoghue, Mildred R.
In today's schools, the additional time demanded by administrators and parents for literacy instruction of school beginners has almost eliminated content area instruction in science and social studies and has reduced instruction in math. This paper shows how to present such instruction in content areas to emergent readers without sacrificing literature through a selection of books recommended in "Best Books for Children." Each book title in the paper relates to content standards recently and professionally established for the lower grades by national organizations and/or a state department of education. Each of the 13 titles may be read aloud to the class and followed by the developmentally appropriate activity described in the paper. Also included are synopses of the books as well as the individual concepts in science, social studies, or math found in those books. (NKA)
