Olive Art's Picture Book Parade introduces... 123 Versus ABC 14
Published: 2013 Author & Illustrator: Mike Boldt
I couldn't do a children's book list without having at least one number or alphabet book, making this one a happy collision and a perfect read for number 14.
I have often thought about creating an alphabet book with my students. It comes to my mind every year when I teach letter design. This past year I allowed some numbers! The connections are coming...
Students could design number, alphabet, color books and more. It could be a team effort or an individual challenge. There are lots of opportunities for writing and utilizing technology as well as reading lots and lots of books similar to 123 Versus ABC.
*The Picture Book Parade!
This series of posts is designed to meet the needs of graduate class, I am currently enrolled in, titled Teaching Art & Literacy through picture books.
One of my assignments is to read, review, reflect, and be inspired by 20 picture books that are new to me and find a way to share them with my classmates, colleges, & PLN.
The Ideas shared will not be ideas I have tried and executed, simply sparks of inspiration derived from a short and colorful read.
I am hoping that these ideas might develop over time, as I water them in my minds and let what's left of my summer vacation shine and pull out the greatness, that is a totally awesome new lesson for my students. One can hope!
So sit back and enjoy the series of posts I am calling the Picture Book Parade!
