A TRIPLE DIP is a delicious literary sundae of 3 books & 1 set of shared experiences.
Each TRIPLE DIP provides 3 carefully curated titles that reflect a Common Thing and/or Big Idea that everyone will recognize. This TRIPLE DIP digs in to 'stars & belonging.'
The titles in this TRIPLE DIP are:
- Sophie & Little Star by Amber Hendricks (2018, picture book)
- Find the Constellations by H.A. Rey (2016, nonfiction)
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman (1996, fantasy)
Students can read one or all 3 books depending on factors like choice, interest, time, learning style, and individual needs. Shared reading or teacher-read titles only add to everyone's interconnectivity.
Topics and themes in this TRIPLE DIP range from astronomy to wishing upon a star to establishing a spot in this vast universe. The synergy of these kidlit titles and related activities spurs fun, thoughtful engagement for students of all sorts.
Individualization is easy. No matter what books anyone reads, all Students can do each of the activities or just the ones that make sense to assign. The permutations range from 1 activity and 1 book to 3 activities for all 3 books.
STEM/STEAM-savvy activities include: book review & rating, presentation/graphic design, story element analysis, fine motor skills, constellation design, writing, speaking, patterns, key word selection, & more. No prep / low prep!
