Are you looking for new books, poems and ideas for prompting rich learning investigations? I’ve got some great ones. Join me. This session will place a special emphasis on making connections across Language Arts, Mathematics and Science. We will make direct links to concepts that build across the primary grades so you can tailor the tasks to your grade level. I will share a checklist for choosing appropriate literature, and using it with purpose.

I have a terrific selection of “new” materials to use.
