A Bear’s Year Across the Curriculum

Recently I skyped with first graders at Tallwood Elementary in Virginia Beach. The visit was arranged by Literary Specialist Karen Kaas. It was a Q & A session and the students were well prepared and asked excellent questions. They used A BEAR’S year to study seasons, bears and hibernation.

One of the class projects was to create a video retelling of A BEAR’S YEAR.

Here it is!


Nicely done!

I was happy that Ms. Kaas gave me permission to share this. She said, “The kids loved doing it. It really was great for bringing science in with reading, writing, and oral language.”

I love hearing how picture books are being used in classrooms from K-high school for multidisciplinary integration.

My 15 minute Q & A Skype visits are free. All teachers have to do is read students one of my books and help students prepare questions for me to answer. If you would like a virtual visit by an author, email me at kathy@kathyduval.com. I’d love to visit your classroom.
