“Tasks Galore – Literature-Based Thematic Units” integrates instruction across core curriculum areas by utilizing multisensory learning.
Using the storybook, “I’m Hungry, I’m Hungry, What Shall I Do?”, as a guide for creating literature-based thematic units, the authors have designed hands-on activities for use with young learners and students with special needs. The strategies employed encourage responsiveness to literature while enhancing vocabulary and language. Tasks illustrate how to make learning more meaningful by:
- using organizational strategies and visual clues
- connecting themes to everyday experiences
- adapting skills for 21st century learning, and
- individualizing for differing learning styles
- science, and
- social studies
Designed for parents, teachers and therapists.
Board Book “I’m Hungry, I’m Hungry, What Shall I Do?” included.
