In the library I strive to collaborate with the classroom teacher to extend learning into the library. The lesson needs to incorporate both library skills and classroom standards. In this series, Read Aloud/Class Book, I will present different trade books in which I have extended my lesson to a class book that the class will be able to have in their library. This lesson can be completed in the classroom as well.
In this lesson, featuring the book, One Potato, Two Potato by Cynthia DeFelice learning objectives include...
1. appreciate of literature
2. recall of story elements
3. story prediction
4. extending the story in a written reflection
5. review of the parts of a plant
