About the Book
This Teaching Resource Guide is perfect for extending students learning and solidifying the confidence boosting skills presented in the Captain Joe series. This guide is made for classroom use by teachers and can easily be adapted for home schooling purposes or to have some fun activities to do together as a family! The guide includes: * 24 different lesson plans based on the 4 books * Distinct learning objectives and Assessment Rubrics * Variety of handouts to complement the lessons * 20 additional resources, including Math Worksheets, Word Searches, Vocabulary lists, and Story Sequence handouts * Comprehension, Word Study and Critical Thinking worksheets for each of the 4 books.

My Take on the Book
There are four entries for activities using the following books written by Emily Madill: Captain Joe to the Rescue, Captain Joe Saves the Day, Captain Joe's Gift, and Captain Joe's Choice. I have read the listed books and they are great books to share with students. The resource book is an opportunity for teachers to extend the content in the stories.

Each entry is written in a lesson plan format.There are specific activity sheets which will encourage your students to think creativity.

So much information for the adult using Emily's books. I believe you will find the resource book a useful guide.
