This Plus That by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
It is a fabulous little book of cute real world connections - that can be used anywhere in your curriculum. It has great connections like city+bustling=city, and yellow +blue = green...
My kids LOVED it! I loved that when I read once upon a time+happily ever after= pretend, all of their hands shot up to tell me that they thought she should have written = fairy tales (we just finished a fairy tales unit). I love all the directions you can go with this ...
evaporation+condensation+precipitation=the water cycle
farm houses+open spaces=rural area
addition + subtraction + multiplication + division = math
I could go on forever! Since today was the first time we read it, I let my kids take it in any direction they wanted. Here are some of their cute ideas!
I am thinking it would be a great culminating activity with almost any unit. I love it and highly recommend it for almost any grade level!
