Product Description
Welcome to my new series of art lessons: Combining books and art

"From the talented Polly Dunbar comes an imaginative adventure that will have children sailing away on their own flights of fancy.

One night, Arthur has an amazing dream about a pink and green boat with a striped mast and a beautiful figurehead. He can’t wait to tell his family about it! But when he tries, no one (not even the dog) is interested in listening. In fact, they don’t even notice when the very same boat gradually appears on his head, growing larger and larger by the minute! Soon Arthur is bouncing over the waves in his very own dream boat. Maybe now his family will listen to him!"

-Good Reads

I have found that the retention level for reading increases when I combine books and art. These books can become part of your reading curriculum OR you can adjust the books based on what you are working with. These lessons are universal for whatever books that fit into the following themes:

-silly birds
-circus theme
-underwater theme
-sailboat theme
-city theme

I offer variations within the lesson on how to teach pertaining to age group and level of difficulty. I give you clear step by step instructions WITH PHOTOGRAPHS on how to prep for the lesson, the amount of time needed to prep and the steps to take to make this a one or two day lesson. I give you a CONCISE checklist upfront of the materials you will need.

I have taught all of the lessons in community centers with mixed age classes, both with and without the books

Please download my freebie lesson to see the format of all my lessons. You will see very clear directions, tons of pics, lots of options to accommodate 4-12 year olds, especially if you are teaching them in a Montessori or homeschool setting.
