Memory Bottles is a wonderful story about Memory and how different sensory queues can trigger them. The concept of a ‘memory’ is very abstract to younger students as it is not something you can hold in your hands and show them.
This lesson familiarizes students with the concepts surrounding memory while delivering a lesson full of Literacy, drawing and craft.
This lesson requires the purchase of “Memory Bottles” by Beth Shoshan and illustrated by Katie Pamment.
Age Range: 5-9 years.
Note: I am not affiliated in any way with the publisher or sellers of this book! I just picked it up one day, loved it and have been using it in classrooms ever since!
One Book Lesson Plans are designed in a way that makes them particularly valuable to Substitute Teachers. They concentrate on engagement to keep behaviour issues to a minimum and cover multiple curriculum areas for those days when the regular teacher's lesson plan is absent, written in chicken scratches or refers to resources that no-one can find! ). One Book Lesson Plans are lessons you can become very familiar and comfortable with to pull out on a moment’s notice, time and time again! Great for those days when your lesson plan is missing, written in chicken scratches or refers to resources that no-one has a clue where to find!
They are my own personal tools for dealing with the everyday pitfalls of being a Substitute Teacher without having to bring a wheelbarrow to carry around my "Bag of Tricks" or visit a copier/printer 10 times a day!
For classroom teachers it's also a fresh approach to the "what did you do on the holidays" exercises or as an Ice Breaker to meet and greet a new class.
