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.

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
