Welcome to my new series of art lessons: Combining books and art
THIS IS AVAILABLE IN MY 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:
A little about the book:
"Sometimes it's no fun being little - like when bedtime comes and you're not sleepy. If you were big you could stay up late toasting marshmallows, or swim in the sea with whales, or ride a real motorbike. There are times, though, when being little is a big advantage!"
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
