Welcome to my new series of art lessons: Combining books and art
THIS IS ONE OF MY LESSONS IN MY 5 PACK BUNDLE: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Kids-Love-Books-and-Art-5-Pack-Lessons-Bundle-2223772
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:
Info on the book:
"When Little Lou finds a wriggly, squiggly piece of wool amongst a pile of toys, she curiously gives it a tug. But - what's this? The wool tugs back - there's something at the other end! And as Little Lou follows the wool, she realises that it's attached to . . . A giant woolly mammoth! Quick, RUN!
But soon the woolly mammoth gets snagged, and he starts to get smaller . . . And smaller . . . And smaller. In fact, he is so small that he doesn't really seem so scary anymore - he's just the right size for a cuddle!
A charming tale of fear, friendship and not judging a book by it's cover, beautifully illustrated by Paula Bowles."
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
