One way children learn to read is through their own writing. They also learn to read through continuing opportunities to engage in both reading and writing. Therefore the classroom activities provide support for authoring and writing, for interacting and creating, as well as for reading. The activities are cross-curricular and are tailored for different age, grade, or reading levels.
A set of five articles suggests ways you can integrate activities around the interactive storybook with other parts of your curriculum and classroom organization. You will find discussions of Thematic Units, Genre studies, Author studies, Drama, and Cooperative Learning. A comprehensive bibliography is also included in the guide.
