These unique workbooks offer hands-on activities that enhance reading or literature studies. Students make construction-paper "pockets" that become a portfolio for reading, writing, and art projects contained in the workbook. Each workbook focuses on a specific genre or type of literature.
This Pocket is slightly different from the others in the series. Rather than including the fictional pieces in the workbook, suggested titles are given for each type of fiction covered. You can use these titles as guidelines and choose your own titles that interest the student if you wish.
The topics covered are: realistic fiction, folklore, adventure stories, sports stories, science fiction, animal stories, mystery stories, jokes and riddles, historical fiction, poetry, humorous stories, and fantasy.
The workbooks also include easy-to-follow teacher directions, background information for presenting each unit, 3-D art projects, and illustrated covers and labels for each pocket. [via]
