Teaching phonemic awareness can be boring and repetitive in the hands of a teacher who wishes to just use a workbook approach. This delightful book packs loads of fun into 75 lesson plans, providing educators with myriad creative strategies for integrating word study with children's picture books. Each lesson includes a read-aloud book description, literacy experience activity, direct instruction, follow-up activities, recommended poem, and related reading. The lessons build skills in phonemic awareness, morphemic analysis, letter identification, rhyming, and sight words, through singing, dancing, games, art activities, cooking, and interesting experiences, as well as a wealth of humorous picture books. The early childhood teacher who is committed to making literacy development meaningful, and as much fun as possible, will enjoy the wealth of valuable material here. Grades K-2.
