Introduction

(5 minutes)
Prep Pictures
  • Tell the students that they will be learning about the different parts of a book in today's lesson.
  • Ask them if they know any parts of a book off the top of their head, and jot them down on the whiteboard.

Beginning

  • Play a quick game of Around The Room by saying the name of an item and having students find and touch the item (e.g. "Find a pencil").
  • Explain that just like pencils, erasers, and desks have different names, there are different names for parts of a book and today you will be learning about them.

Intermediate

  • Ask students to turn and talk to a partner to share what they know about books.
  • Provide them with the sentence stem, "I know that books have____" for support.
