Although I am late getting this up and won't be able to participate in the Linky, I still wanted to post our activities surrounding the book Edward and the Pirates by David McPhail.
We had never read anything by David McPhail, so we checked out a couple of his books and read them.
McPhail is an author we really enjoyed. His illustrations were brilliant, too. What I really loved about the books was his obvious love of reading. In fact, reading is a main theme in all of the Edward books.
We happened to be doing a unit study on Maps, so reading a book about pirates and a treasure map was extra fun. Here are a couple of the activities we did:
|A math grid assignment helping us find the treasure. Fun!|
|Peripheral vision activity.|
|Depth perception activity.|
I had planned to make a treasure map and send the kids on a scavenger hunt to find a hidden treasure. But, we never got around to it. We got deep into our Maps study and just never found the time.
This month's author is Dr. Seuss. I need to get that one planned!
