Kindergarten teachers know that a child's first taste of school should be engaging, active, social, and fun! Yet teachers are presented with a challenge. How do they nurture the holistic, exploratory nature of early childhood while teaching with the intentionality and rigor required to meet learning goals? Let this resource pave the way. English Language Arts the Kindergarten Way contains methods for teaching foundational reading skills, building vocabulary, inspiring and developing writing, and helping children respond to literature and informational text--while inherently fulfilling the needs of the whole child. An entire year of activities is included. And all activities are classroom-tested and naturally infuse visual art, music, drama, poetry, movement and puppetry--so that kindergartners meet learning goals their way.
Bella loves the bunny at playschool because it is soft and furry, just like the sweater that Bella's Nonna knit for her birthday, but when both the bunny and sweater go missing, it's only natural that they would both turn up in the same place.
As a garden takes root, so does a community. Vincent is staying with his aunt Mimi for the summer, and her drab city neighborhood doesnÕt seem too promising. But then he meets a boy named Toma, and things start looking up. When Mimi asks Vincent to get rid of her Òdirt balls,Ó the boys have fun throwing them into a nearby empty lot. And then one day, they notice new shoots are sprouting all over the lot. Maybe those balls werenÕt just made of dirt after all! Sometimes friendships and flowers Ñ and neighborhoods Ñ can bloom from the same soil.
A young boy is fondly remembering last summer, when his dad built an awesome tree house in their backyard. He played with his brother in the tree house for the majority of the summer. It was the best summer ever. Sadly, everything changed. His brother became too busy with his friends to come to the tree house. However, one night the power unexpectedly goes out while the young boy is there by alone, and he's treated to an amazing view of his neighbourhood. And then, just as unexpectedly, his brother appears, wanting to join him, to savour the magic of the night.
Every Sunday morning, no matter the weather, Eli could count on Zaida to bring bagels from Merv's Bakery. Eli loved the time they spent together enjoying their favorite treats. ?Warm. Chewy. Salty,? Eli thought. ?Bagels were the best thing about Sunday.? But one Sunday, Zaida didn't come. He had fallen at Merv's and ?hurt his tuches,? and the doctor said Zaida had to rest at home for two whole weeks. This meant Eli had no Sunday morning bagels. And neither did Zaida's friends, who had been receiving their own weekly deliveries from Zaida. Will they all go hungry for bagels on Sunday? Or is there something Eli can do? Award-winning author Andrew Larsen's picture book story offers a gently humorous take on the special bond between a boy and his grandfather and the simple ritual that looms so large in their lives. It also highlights a terrific character education lesson about how a young child can take responsibility and, with a little initiative, help a family member in need. With a blend of retro and contemporary styles, Sandy Nichols's softly colored illustrations cleverly convey the story's timelessness and capture Eli's diverse neighborhood. This book will spark wonderful discussions about family traditions and community. A mini glossary and pronunciation guide for the Yiddish words that are sprinkled throughout the story (like mensch and oy) provides an opportunity to learn about the many words we use in English that come from other languages, and to explore the connections between culture and language.
Andrew Larsen evokes the eternal hope and joy of all true baseball fans --- along with their love of facts --- in this heartwarming story about a baseball-loving boy who doesn't give up.Lenny can't get enough of baseball. He loves to play. And he loves to pore over his Big Book of Baseball Facts. He wants to be in the big leagues someday, and, he figures, the more he knows, the better his chances. The only thing is, though he tries to keep his eye on the ball as it heads his way during a game, it somehow ends up by his feet. "You just need to practice," his dad tells him. So they practice. And practice. Lenny doesn't give up. And it pays off. Lenny makes a game-changing catch! Now he's proven he can be great some of the time. Which, according to the facts, makes him just like the greatest Hall of Famers, right?In this endearing picture book, bestselling author Andrew Larsen celebrates the love of both the game of baseball and its countless facts --- which for many fans go hand in hand. It offers a strong character-building portrait of perseverance and patience at work in skill development. It also underscores the importance of letting go of the idea of perfection. With energy and emotion in equal parts, Milan Pavlović's illustrations capture Lenny's (and baseball's) highs and lows, and his loving supportive relationship with his father.
Instead of volunteering to provide halftime snacks, a dedicated Soccer Dad decides to join his son's soccer team. In a hilarious role reversal, the son becomes the frustrated expert who teaches his dad how to be a team player. Dad complains about having to play defense (boring!) and thinks playing soccer is all about winning. When his son explains that soccer is about having fun, Dad picks dandelions, fools around on the sidelines and kicks the practice balls everywhere. When his son further explains that having fun also means participating and getting your head in the game, Dad plays like he's the only one on the field, groans loudly when the other team scores a goal and throws a hairy fit when a another player accidentally trips him. The boy's patience and understanding are tested over and over again as he tries to desperately--and finally successfully!--instruct his father on how to behave on the field."--
