As soon as I saw this book, my mind was buzzing with the wonderful art it could inspire. Then I started reading and realised that it goes way beyond art. As you will see from my Year 1 book inspired learning resource below, it is rich in inspirational opportunities for learning in most subjects. This resource is for Year 1 children, for an Early Years version, sign up for our Bookish Bulletin.
Throughout my teaching career I always put high quality literature at the heart of children's learning. Whole topics and learning themes were inspired by books and so were the children. It gives a purpose for, and more value to, learning when everything is linked. But developing a book led creative curriculum takes time, something busy teachers have precious little of. So here is my little bit to help, learning maps inspired by some of the beautiful bookish treasures we have here at Pages of Joy. Perfect for homeschooling too!
