You or your students bring picture books or books up to 1st grade level – award-winning books are best!- and use the PerfettoWritingRoom’s materials which are supplied as follows.
- Overview (there is no watermark or distinguishing features on this
product) along with Directions, then…
- THE 2-page ANALYSIS QUESTIONNAIRE. Students fill this out
for each book they review.
- The 2-page Summation and Findings Page – in which students reveal what they have learned. There will be general findings that will prove incredibly useful, and applicable should students move on towards a picture book project, or, a paper in which they write about their findings.
As it turns out, there are many decisions that go into making even the “simplest” book. We know your students will discern some guiding principles, trends, or criteria after looking at several books.
Our two handout sections are specially designed to cultivate their critical thinking and analysis skills. If you already have decided that this would make a great paper or project activity, consider this resource, which has it all:
***For Your Convenience, we have included a version in "handwriting" in which questions have lines after them, and a version in "computer" in which the lines have been erased.
This is a truly unique lesson. Fun, but certainly not Child’s Play. Should you select this hard-working lesson plan. . . .

And Thank you for all of the hard work you do today, and every day.
