Treasures reading series by McGraw Hill is incorporated in any way possible to teach the many state standards. Last week we were reading about insects and teaching the /ou/ow sounds. I used a song by Hunkta Hunkta Boo Boo 2 CD that was all about "Itchy Itchy Owie Owie Boo Boo". I saw the idea on a blog--sorry I can't come up with the link right now--using bandaids on illustrations that the kids drew. Then they wrote about their "ouches". I made a Movie Maker to show our finished projects.
