Teaching with Newbury Books ~

We just finished this morning reading "Mr. Poppers Penguins" and now it is time to move forward to another book and I wanted to share a resource I found at our library called "Teaching with Favorite Newbury Books".

http://www.amazon.com/Teaching-Favorite-Newbery-Books-Grades/dp/0590019759

It is a great resource for teaching literature. Within each chapter it has a different Newbury book complete with a summary, chapter by chapter activity for making a little book, ideas for information or objectives that the student might gain knowledge of, vocabulary, a "through ideas" section to aide in better comprehension and understanding of the story line and activities included, along with "Beyond Ideas" a activity to further their understanding the author is trying to convey .

For each chapter there is also a reading response prompt that is helpful while reading the book.

For me, the hard part is trying to decide which book to read next !

Hope this is helpful in your literature studies...

Happy Reading!
