This is a set of lesson ideas for 8 weeks for library. Classrooms can use this for literacy centers as well. I am a librarian for a K-4 school. My periods are 40 minutes. I break my periods up into 25-30 minutes lessons and 10-15 minutes for book picking depending on the grades. Some of these lessons I have broken up into two weeks, where one week is story lesson and the next activity. These lessons are easily adaptable to older students. These lessons are intensive and will require prep and patience.
The books you will need are:
Magic Trash: The story of Tyree Guyton
Rap a Tap Tap:Think of that the story of Bill Robinson
One Grain Of Rice
Ten Apples on Top
Bartholomew and the Oobleck
