5LittleMonkeys Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 I've briefly read about FIAR and love the idea of it but have never actually used it. I have adapted the ideas for ds5...for example, we read If You Give a Moose of Muffin, talked about the sequence of events in the book, looked at pictures of real moose and what areas they live in, made a sock puppet, baked muffins, made small paper muffins to use as counters for some math games, and drew some pictures of moose. I'm thinking that I could do something similar for these classes...there's a PreK class (3 to young 5's) and a K-1st class (older 5's to 6). I'd like to just do one storybook for both classes but adjust the activities for the different age groups and just do one book per co-op day (so 12 total). Each class is only an hour so we would only be able to do one or two short activities per story. So, what do you all think? Do-able? Anyone happen to already do something similar in a co-op setting? Also, any resources out there I could use that are free? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
