Hey! I Can Read This! The Interactive Book Experience.
Butt, Donna Sabino; Thurman, Kathy Barlow
This teaching resource goes beyond songs, games, and finger plays to function as a one-of-a-kind interactive book. Teachers are given basic instructions on how to create a variety of different interactive books for their students to enjoy. Lists of materials needed to create each book are also included with the instructions. The resource book links original text set to familiar tunes with manipulative pieces that are attached to the book with velcro. While singing the text, the children move the pieces to their appropriate places within the book. The resource provides reproducible patterns, instructions, and verses for more than 25 interactive books covering language, math, science, geography, and character education, and offers language extension activities too. It is divided into the following sections: Introduction: Dear Teachers; What Are Interactive Books and Why Use Them?; How to Make Interactive Books; How to Introduce and Use Interactive Books; and How Interactive Books Fit into the Curriculum. Appended are an Expanded Skills Grid and Index of Interactive Books (Listed by Skill). (NKA)
Descriptors: Class Activities, Instructional Effectiveness, Learning Activities, Primary Education, Reading Materials, Reading Motivation, Singing
