Synopsis

Teaching Thinking Skills with Picture Books, K-3 K3 by Nancy J. Polette

This step-by-step introduction to teaching thinking skills in the primary grades will be useful to teachers, librarians and staff development personnel. It will be of particular interest to teachers of the gifted. Each thinking skill is explained in a full-page reproducible format followed by a page offering booktalks to be used to introduce favorite picture books that can be used to teach that skill to young children and two pages of reproducible activities for the children to practice the newly learned skill. Over 30 skills are taught ranging from analogy to hypothesizing to inferring to patterning and reversible thinking. This book will be a logical companion to Teaching Thinking Skills with Fairy Tales and Fantasy (Teacher Ideas Press, 2005) that focuses on teaching these skills to older students.
