Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
Bauernschub, Mary Beth
In the children's book, "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse," Lilly gets into trouble for interrupting class to show off her three shiny quarters and her purple plastic purse, which makes music when it is opened. This curriculum unit intended for students in grades 2 and 3 supports the book (and Kennedy Center Production). The five lessons in the unit may be taught as a group or individually and, although rooted in the language arts, may be used to teach math, science, and other disciplines. The following lessons are part of the unit: "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse": A Deeper Shade of Purple; "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse": All Things Purple; "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse": Jingly Coins; "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse": Nifty Disguises; and "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse": Safe Bike Behavior. Each lesson offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; lists subjects and subtopics; cites dimensions of learning and intelligences being addresses; notes equipment and materials needed; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. Each lesson also identifies instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; suggests assessment and extension activities; and lists teacher references.
