It’s Wednesday, February 25, 2015, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Vandergrift’s Children’s Literature
Age Range: All (All grades, children with parental supervision)
Nothing brings literature to life like doing the things the characters in the book do! So many wonderful children’s stories have references to food – the characters talk about food, grow food, make food, cook food, eat food, think about food, and use food for unusual, funny, and fascinating purposes.
At this website you will find a list of cookbooks that contain recipes based on children’s literature. From Peas Porridge Hot – A Mother Goose Cookbook
to Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes
(Dahl is the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
, James and the Giant Peach
and more) to The Laura Ingalls Wilder Country Cookbook
– this website provides a way to find recipes for delicious foods that reinforce learning language arts
. Just print out the list, take it to your library or bookstore, and cook up a good read.
Once you do that, visit the rest of this site by returning to the home page where you will find inspirational messages on how to share good literature with children along with fascinating insight to gender and cultural issues in stories designed for children. There are bibliographies of books on author’s lives. You will even find “A Sort of Children’s Literature Literacy Test” – in which you are given the first line of a picture or story book and asked to name the title of the book!
