Teachers can use easy, fun activities from Between the Lions to integrate literacy across the curriculum and throughout the day with easy, fun activities from Between the Lions®!

The ideas and activities in this invaluable resource enrich learning centers with experiences that follow a literacy scope and sequence to help children become successful readers. Learning centers include:

Each activity includes a list of materials, instructions, a vocabulary list, a skill focus, and theme connections. Many include an additional idea and a link to stories, songs, games, and poems on the PBS KIDS® website that can be used to support children's learning.

Wild About Learning Centers helps teachers infuse their classrooms with the joy of learning to read throughout the entire day!

My Take on the Book
This book was a great book for any parent or teacher of young children. The book is well laid out in a way to help the reader in accomplishing learning goals. What was nice about the book was the fact that it shares with you the appropriate age for the activity as well as the materials needed, what you should be doing in the activity and other ideas to extend the idea, so really the book is completely full of lesson plans that are easy to implement and use. With each lesson also sharing what skills and themes that they focus on, you are able to truly know what you should focus on and how it will help the child/children that you are working with!
