Lessons Inspired by Picture Books for Primary Grades by Maureen Schlosser and Rebecca Granatini

This ready-to-go toolkit of lessons, worksheets, anchor charts, assessments, and rubrics is specifically designed for school librarians and other educators. The book provides

  • 21 lessons that cover the six Shared Foundations, each following a formatted template that’s easy to follow and incorporates the four Domains (Think, Create, Share, Grow);
  • a picture book synopsis for each lesson, followed by that lesson’s objective, essential question, materials, and duration;
  • worksheets, anchor charts, and exit slips tailored for each picture book;
  • “Quick Tips” that offer helpful ideas and suggestions to consider during the lesson; and
  • an appendix that includes assessments and rubrics.

With this resource in hand, learners and educators alike will think, create, share, and grow as they work together to meet the new AASL Standards.

School Library Connection “highly recommends” our book. “This guide will help librarians looking for new ideas to establish collaborative relationships with classroom teachers on common objectives saving valuable planning time”~Barbara S. Zinkovich, Media Specialist, Salt River Elementary School, Scottsdale, Arizona.

Against the Grain gave our book this rating: “If I were a school librarian…I need this book in my library. I want to be able to get up from my desk and grab this book off the shelf if it’s not checked out.”
