Category Description for Literature Pockets:

What's a literature pocket? A literature pocket is a "student portfolio with pockets full of projects." Each of these workbooks starts off with detailed instructions on how your children can create their own personal portfolio to hold their literature pockets. Literature Pockets - Caldecott Winners are exciting workbooks full of age-appropriate projects for grades 1-3 and 4-6. Each of these workbooks highlights the works of eleven award-winning illustrators through eleven creative and fun projects. A complete list of all the Caldecott winners from 1938 through 2001 is provided in each workbook. As you learn about each illustrator, you might want to check out the book from the local library so your children can experience their artwork and the story first hand. There are seven pages dedicated to each illustrator. A thorough biography is provided, and the following pages hold fun projects and cut outs to create a new pocket for the portfolio. The projects focus on creative writing and artistic creation. These fun projects often are a spin-off of what the story is all about. For example, in the grades 1-3 workbook, one of the Caldecott winners featured is Ezra Jack Keats who illustrated The Snowy Day. The projects that follow have children write about their own snowy day experience, create a snowflake stamp, cut out snowflakes and write about what snow is, and create an accordion book with a simplified version of the story. Each project provides a list of the materials you need, reproducible patterns, and detailed instructions. Literature Pockets - Nursery Rhymes follows the same structure as the Caldecott Winners workbooks. This workbook is created for grades K-1 and contains activities for twelve nursery rhymes. This book contains well-known favorites such as "Jack and Jill" and Little Bo Peep." As well as lesser-known rhymes such as "My Black Hen" and "To Market, To Market." All twelve nursery rhymes are printed in the book, and eight pages of simple and fun art projects accompany each one. For example, for "Little Bo Peep" your child will create an accordion book, cut-and-paste to make a sheep out of cotton balls, and color a picture to see how many sheep are hidden in the background. Each workbook features reproducible student pages and is 96 pgs. - elise

I have used the Native American Pockets before and really enjoyed them. I believe this will give little ones some creative time with little prep. A plus is that all the activities will be contained in one book for ease of review.

Amazing! I was so ashamed of myself for buying a "canned curriculum " so let me just say first - DON'T BE ASHAMED! Your kids will love learning with this book The Nursery Rhyme edition is jam-packed with activities that I am using and/or adapting for 2 kids ages 3 and 6 along with whatever friends happen to be here when we do them The kids are proud to memorize nursery rhymes and gain valuable practice reciting them with the puppets and other cute accessories they make There are a few cute early-math activities (like counting eggs) but it's not really a total curriculumWe are covering one rhyme every week or so depending on what else is going on I'm looking forward to using History Pockets and Literature Pockets in our Grade One studies over the coming year My only "criticism" might be that the pockets are very large making the complete book rather awkward to hold store and carry around Still it's wonderful having everything self-contained with ZERO prepwork and the kids really do love this resource

I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with the Nursery Rhyme Literature Pockets My daughters (aged 6 and 4) wake-up in the morning asking to make a new "book" They LOVE creating their pockets and adding the finished activities to each one In fact - they couldn't wait to show their books to other family members What I like is that each nursery rhyme encompasses various learning styles including auditory (listening to the rhyme); verbal (retailing the rhyme with props); kinesthetic (making crafts to go with the rhyme); and visual (putting the story in order) My younger daughter does not enjoying coloring each of the pages - so we paint them (with the Do-A-Dots) or leave them blank - after all it is the concept that matters! Both girls have tried rhyming words throughout the day and enjoy making up their own fairy tales (which can get pretty entertaining) I purchased this book as a fun activity and review for the upcoming school year - however you could use it anytime of the year - especially if you are homeschooling pre-K and Kindergarten children! The book contains reproducibles so you have to make copies of the pages in order to create the "pockets" I really didn't mind doing this because I thought the book itself was fairly inexpensive If you are looking for a fun and creative way to get your children excited about reading - this is the book for you! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
