Help kids understand Eric Carle's messages about compassion, perseverance, and more. Includes: author study and literacy-building activities. Who would have guessed that a little book like The Very Hungry Caterpillar would have so much to offer beyond a lovely, entertaining story? In fact, with Scholastic's Teaching with Favorite Eric Carle Books, kids can build skills in writing, math, art, social studies, science, and more. Using Carle's beloved books (including The Very Busy Spider, Pancakes, Pancakes!, and more) as a stepping stone, teachers can extend the learning that comes naturally with these books. For each individual title, a variety of activities is suggested, including vocabulary-building games, phonics lessons, poems, math activities, science investigations, interactive displays, movement games, and art projects. Concepts and themes for each book are highlighted at the beginning of every chapter, so students can remain focused on relevant issues. In addition, a list of ideas is included for enhancing children's literature-based experiences anytime--putting on miniplays or making maps, for example. Packed with tips, wordplay, drawings, and guidance for future learning, this educational resource is sure to be a resource for fun as well. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
