Review quote

"Teachers and librarians of early elementary school children need to have a copy of Read It Again, because it models how to use children's literature as a springboard for integrating curriculum and meeting standards in a variety of subject areas using a clearly laid out format. Each section, 'Pre-School, ' 'Kindergarten, ' and 'Early Elementary, ' includes ten lesson using age appropriate titles by outstanding authors. Each lesson has a brief synopsis of the book, a skills table indicating which standards are being met, a supply list, preparation message, discussion questions, and at least one activity. Most lessons have a 'Tech Tie-In' section with a Web address and an activity. Activities include pattern pages, arts and craft ideas, dramatic role playing, singing, building models, listening, writing, recalling details, and synthesizing information. The discussion questions following the story include lower and higher level thinking skills. The format could be replicated for older students and ideas like posting student poems on the Web can be used for higher grades, as well. The author succinctly explains everything, with focused lessons that include a multitude of ideas, suggestions, and tools to use to meet subject area standards. The 'Key to Standards' page with URL's of organizations with their standards can be useful for collection development purposes. Bibliography. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
