literature-based projects
Thu, 04-17-2003 - 4:57pm
Hi, I am a parent and my friend, a first grade teacher, said there are books

for teachers on art projects and/or activities related to books/literature.

I forgot to get the names of those books from her so was wondering

if you can recommend some that I can look into buying. She is a teacher

so I'm assuming they are something only teachers know about which

is why I'm coming here. I think if I know the titles or authors, I can

search to see where I can get them for myself.

Thanks so much! Wendy (looking for enrichment ideas for my kids ages 4 & 7)

Every teacher supply store has shelves of idea materials. Check you yellow pages. There are some great companies that specialize in teacher idea books. Teacher-Created Materials, Frank Schafer, Good Apple, Scholastic and Instructional Fair are just a few that come to mind. Many also have web sites. There are also web sites with lesson ideas for every subject. Just do a search for "lesson plans" and you'll get more than you need.
