"Crafting projects that provide literacy and curriculum ideas to enrich the classroom Make It! Write It! Read It! develops art and literacy skills through the craft of bookmaking, inspiring elementary-aged children to read, write, and tell stories with their creations. Creative, fun, field-tested projects include 17 different blank book designs such as accordion fold, coffee filter, hanging tassel, and paper bag books. These designs are then applied to 23 specific book projects kids are sure to love, with suggestions for making literary connections--writing poems, paragraphs, or simple stories related to their creations. Kids will delight in making books that include three-part fish, a creature pop-up, a double-sided mountain, and an ocean scene, among many others. Carefully crafted with teachers and parents or caregivers of kids aged 4-10 in mind, each activity has educational objectives for the project; skills developed; materials needed; clear, illustrated, step-by-step instructions; literary connection ideas; and space for evaluation notes. The text is specific enough for beginners who need more direction yet offers open-ended possibilities for imagination and creation for more experienced bookmakers, writers, and artists"-- Provided by publisher.
