Books to Life
Children love to be part of the action. This year's 54 BEST award-winning picture books (from the Kids Wings®,ALA Caldecott® Books, Texas Library Association's 2x2 ListSM and ,Abilene ISD Mockingbird AwardSM) invite your students to become active participants in the science, math, language arts, and social studies concepts embedded in their favorite award-winning literature. In this year's selections, students will contemplate questions that bring them into the STORIES:
you were a character in a book, who would you be?
As you provide the spotlight on possibilities in literature, children will see things they might have missed on their own and will be invited to jump into the stories and play with the characters, and help them solve the story's problem. Tapping into children's laughter and wonder, this literature collection builds enthusiasm for academic and social skills as well as character development. These award-winning stories and nonfiction books with Kids Wings activities that cross disciplines will invite them to dive actively into science, challenge them in to participate in math, and inspire creative expression across the curriculum.
Characters, settings, and situations in selections from the 54 award-winning picture books will open eyes, hearts, and minds with delight and provide a myriad of opportunity to bring books to life in their own lives. Literature will tickle their funny bones and bring welcome laughter into your classroom. At the same time, it will inspire them to learn more, to do projects, and to improve in their reading, writing, science, and math skills while providing scaffolding to high level thinking, cooperative discussion, character building, and more.
