A Two-Minute Video Emphasizing the Benefits of the Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King Award–Winning Picture Book
by Tatiana Florival
The concept of being on the bus, as simple as that can be, just reminds the reader and students that anything they do—as simple as commuting—can be an opportunity to learn and be a better person.
Kindergarten teacher Barbara Garibaldi from Condit Elementary in Houston, Texas, loves using Last Stop on Market Street to help her students practice social-emotional skills—such as finding and appreciating the beauty in everyday things. Plus she discusses how students can:
• Discover an author’s purpose and the message of a book through textual connections
• Visualize the experiences of others (and see their own world in a new sensory way!)
• Sequence through story maps and webs
Watch her quick teacher review video and get inspired by the class activities she uses with Last Stop on Market Street—a Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King Award–winning picture book!
