Can you read with your eyes shut? Young learners are taught how to read books correctly from left-to-right and top-to-bottom. Additionally, they discover how to locate basic information in books, such as the title and the author. A simple yet effective lesson that utilizes the Dr. Seuss classic, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut.
Following a reading of Frogs by Gail Gibbons, young scientists write about one fact they learned from the reading to include in a class book about frog facts. Class members illustrate their sentences and add a title page and a table of contents. Learners also practice categorization skills by dividing the class book into sections and deciding which facts belong in each section. After laminating and binding, the book becomes part of the classroom library.
Third graders investigate "How To" books by watching a "How To" video and looking at books in the media center. They make a class "How To" book with a title page, table of contents, individual student pages, and graphics which they make in a software program. They sign a class picture that is taken with a digital camera to be included in the "How To" book.
I really like this charming presentation on the parts of a book. This PowerPoint is designed for very young readers, and colorfully shows these important elements. The information on the cover of a book, the table of contents, the glossary, and the index are all covered here. I wouldn't hesitate to use this with my kindergarten or first grade class. Very good!
