As part of our curriculum this year, we worked with Evan-Moor's Literature Pockets. I can make the History Pockets work for all my children and their varying academic levels. So, we work on those as a group. But, that seemed more difficult with the Literature Pockets. So, they each had their own Evan-Moor book.
Folktales & Fairy Tales, Grades K-1
for Princess K
for Princess K
|Goldilocks & the Three Bears craft|
Folktales & Fairy Tales, Grades 2-3
for Mr. T
|Mr. T's book was made in the same way as Princess K's.|
|His work was similar to Princess K's in that each pocket had the story, a character sheet, a couple language activities & a craft. His language activities included writing activities & learning about adjectives, verbs & dialogue.|
|Henny Penny craft|
Caldecott Winners, Grades 4-6
for Capt. N
|Capt. N's book was a little different. Instead of fairy tales, he learned about Caldecott Winners. I loved this. We got to check out some great picture books from the library & learn about award winning illustrators.|
|Capt. N's language activities included many writing assignments, a venn diagram & a simile assignment.|
|The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses craft|
|Mirette on the High Wire craft|
I would say I picked the right book for each of my kids. The grade level listed on the Evan-Moor books seemed to be right on with the academic levels of my kids.
Although, looking back, I probably could have skipped Mr. T's book & let him do the same one as Capt. N. I think he really would have enjoyed the stories we read & the more challenging crafts.
All three books were a hit with my kids. They were a fun way to add Language Arts to our day.
