Learning About Winter With Children's Literature
Cross-curricular Units Based on the Works of Frank Asch, Ezra Jack Keats, Tomie De Paola, and MoreeBook - 2006
Taking a thematic approach to learning that employs seeing, hearing, reading, and writing, these books outline three four-week, cross-curricular units that develop the competencies children need to become fluent, independent readers and writers. While each unit focuses primarily on language phonic skills, structural analysis, punctuation, capitalization, poetry, and comprehension they also include math, science, social studies, music, art, and even mini-lessons in French for cross-cultural appreciation. Understanding that student ability levels in younger grades can vary widely, lesson plans are keyed to three types of learners: emerging, typical, and advanced. The series includes three titles that cover fall, spring, and winter, and the books can be used independently or together throughout the school year.
