131 Ways to Use Film Containers: To Teach Literacy, Math, and Science--and Just to Have Fun!
Crystal Springs Books
Experienced educator Donna Whyte has compiled her ideas for using film containers in the classroom into "131 Ways to Use Film Containers" so that they can be shared with other teachers. She includes engaging ways to use them in teaching children about word families, sight words, and punctuation marks; skip counting, estimating, and predicting; and constellations, evaporation, light reflection, and magnetism. In addition, she includes art projects and gift-making ideas. Included are directions, reproducibles, and adhesive labels. After an introduction and a note to teachers on beginning activities, this book is divided into 6 sections: (1) Classroom Management; (2) Literacy; (3) Math; (4) Science; (5) Art; and (6) Gifts. An Index to text and an Index to reproducible labels are included.
