KATHLEEN RUTAN on Dec 16, 05:22pm *As an elementary school media coordinator, I appreciate the potential of this lesson for lower elementary students.*Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content.*Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added.*Strengths: Prior knowledge activated and are used as a catalyst for new knowledge. There are opportunities for real-world applications.*Opportunities: The SLMC can be an instructional partner in planning and delivering instruction, assessing student progress, and evaluating activities. AMANDA VERNON on Dec 08, 06:09pm I am an elementary media specialist and after viewing this resource it could be remixed for expansion.Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content.Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added.The SLMC could be an instructional partner in planning and delivering instruction, assessing student progress, and evaluating activities.Information literacy goals could be incorporated seamlessly.The library could be used as part of the instructional space.Prior knowledge is activated and used as a catalyst for new knowledge.There are opportunities for real-world applications.Digital content could be used in instruction.Technology could be used for student exploration, organization, and/or creativity. Tiffany Williams on Dec 06, 08:23pm I can appreciate the incorporation of the book with a hands-on activity for students to get involved after reading and discussing the book.Partial integration of one or more information literacy strategies by reading the book together.Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be addedStrengths: This lessons lends itself to an intersection between art, science, and information literacy skills. Fun!There's an opportunity for students to draw on their background knowledge and experience with plants and gardens. With lower elementary school students, this could be a lively discussion! GABRIELLE LAMB on Dec 04, 07:17am This is a lesson plan for young children that could be tied to science and health.*Partial integration of one or more information literacy strategies. *Collaboration between SLMC and teacher could be added.*Strengths- Lends well to cross curricular activities and fine motor skills*Opportunities- Tie into a similar book involving foods to do a compare/contrast; real life interactive component where students are given pictures of the foods and group themselves accordingly. MARGARET SULLIVAN BRANNON on Dec 03, 01:06pm A cute sorting activity for young students. *Partial integration of one or more information literacy strategies by bringing in the SLMC to read to the students, or to read another plant book. I would read Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens with this. *Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added. *The content could be improved by using an interactive board or projector to have students solve the sorting assignment. I would also like to see some specific questions to use during reading included with the lesson.
