DEAR EDUCATOR, Everyone loves great picture books which combine engaging texts with effective and beautiful. illustrations These books motivate primary students to learn to read and create a lifetime love of. reading They introduce children to excellent art of all varieties inspiring them to create their own. pictures The simple honed stories enrich children s vocabulary and serve as fine models for their own. writing In this brochure you ll find a rich array of picture books for the primary grades many of them. Caldecott Medal winners or Honor Books, Picture books create excitement about reading and also fit perfectly into the English Language Arts. requirements of the Common Core State Standards The K 3 standards call for students to pay close. attention to words and illustrations and to learn to identify characters setting and plot The books in. this brochure offer the sort of multilayered language that the standards emphasize Common Core also. requires second and third graders to learn about folklore which is a pleasure with outstanding folktales. like Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People s Ears and Seven Blind Mice. The brochure is organized by categories that reflect the needs of primary grade classrooms Within. each category is an annotated list of appropriate books each aligned to a specific Common Core. standard with at least one activity related to that standard You ll also find additional annotated book. selections in each category The suggested activities fulfill the standards in ways that acknowledge. different learning styles Visual learners thrive on exercises like picture walks and drawing scenes from. a book to create a class scroll Read alouds and discussions work effectively for auditory learners while. activities like making books or sequencing sentence strips appeal to tactile learners Many students. enjoy performing skits and role playing which are especially geared toward kinesthetic learners. An activity provided for one book or at one level is likely to be useful for other books or levels as. well For example the picture walk suggested for Ladybug Girl works well with any picture book The. time line activity and resources for The Glorious Flight can be done with any chronological nonfiction. or fiction book to practice sequencing Some of the activities also point to Web tie ins which reflect. Common Core s emphasis on technology Those can be used with different grade levels So no matter. which level you teach look through the whole brochure for ideas We know you ll find something for. your needs Happy reading,PENGUIN SCHOOL AND LIBRARY.

RL 1 7 USE ILLUSTRATIONS AND DETAILS IN A STORY TO. DESCRIBE ITS CHARACTERS SETTING OR EVENTS, One way to have students retell a story is through sentence strips.
strips of paper or oak tag each with one simple sentence about the. story Create the strips maybe leaving space for students to draw a small picture of the action or adding pictures yourself Make. enough copies for students to work alone or in small groups and put each set in an envelope or plastic bag Students practice. putting the strips in the order of how the actions occur in the story If you have pocket charts those work well for this. Read The Snowy Day aloud sharing the pictures Read it again telling students to pay attention to what happens in the story Review. the action together after reading Now distribute the sentence strips If you want students to illustrate them talk about how to match. the picture to the sentence Then have students alone or in small groups put the sentence strips in order They can start by referring. to the book and then try without the book This useful exercise in sequencing can be used with any simple story.
