Seeing children participate in an elementary school physical education lesson inspired this original story. This is a story about a Captain and his Crew as they journey on an exciting adventure. Readers will see how important it is for everyone to work together for a safe and successful voyage. The author has chosen to use bold outlines and colors to encourage readers to draw the characters and invent their own. Interactive pictures support the story and ask readers to review details for understanding. Audio is available on many pages to help emerging readers and a full video version of the story is included at the end. For teachers and group facilitators a recommended lesson plan for a supporting activity has also been added.
This book offers brightly colored artwork and enhanced media and includes great connections between a story and physical education. Great ideas for lesson plans for teachers are also included.
Fun and Interactive
It has been entertaining for the kids and we have fun with it. Its nice that there are lessons in the back. Though I don't teach, I can see what the goals to get out of the book would be for a teacher.
This is an entertaining and educational multimedia children's book. Great tool for the elementary teacher!
