Gifts, a book in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 1-3, gives students the opportunity to discover extrinsic and intrinsic gifts available to them in their everyday lives. The books in Prufrock's new Differentiated Curriculum Kits employ a differentiated, integrated curriculum based on broad themes. This all-in-one curriculum helps teachers save planning time, ensure compliance with national standards, and most importantly, pique their students' natural excitement and interest in discovery. By participating in the wide variety of activities in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 1-3, students will discover the gifts around them and gain a lifelong desire to learn. Sentimental, personal, historical, symbolic, endangered, and fragile gifts are explored. Students also will learn the concept of supply and demand when assessing value or worth. The process and science of the preservation of national treasures also is investigated by students. From Egyptian pharaohs to poor farmers, students will find that everyone has gifts to offer. Gifts, along with the other books in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 1-3 (Discoveries, Faces, Cycles, and Symbols), makes teaching advanced learners easier! Grades 1-3 This curriculum unit makes use of the following great children's literature books: Tutankhamen's Gift by Robert Sabuda; Song and Dance Man by Karen Ackerman; Alejandro's Gift by Richard E. Albert; This is Our Earth by Laura Lee Benson; The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein; The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams; Aunt Claire's Yellow Beehive Hair by Deborah Blumenthal; The Pain and the Great One by Judy Blume; and The Great Trash Bash by Loreen Leedy.

At the age of forty-five, Deborah Tobola returns to her birthplace, San Luis Obispo, to work in the very prison her father worked in when he was a student at Cal Poly. But she’s not wearing a uniform as he did; she’s there to teach creative writing and manage the prison’s arts program—a dream job. As she creates a theatre program for prisoners, Tobola finds plenty of drama off the stage as well. Inside the razor wire she finds a world frozen in the ’50s, with no contact with the outside except by telephone; officers who think prisoners don’t deserve programs; bureaucrats who want to cut arts funding; and inmates who steal, or worse. But she loves engaging prisoners in the arts and helping them discover their voices: men like Opie, the gentleman robber; Razor, the roughneck who subscribes to The New Yorker; charismatic Green Eyes, who really has blue eyes; Doo Wop, a singer known for the desserts he creates from prison fare. Alternating between tales of creating drama in prison and Tobola’s own story, Hummingbird in Underworld takes readers on an unforgettable literary journey—one that is frank, funny, and fascinating.

In their first edition of Mentor Texts, authors Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli helped teachers across the country make the most of high-quality children's literature in their writing instruction. In Mentor Texts: Teaching Writing Through Children's Literature, K-6, 2nd Edition the authors continue to show teachers how to help students become confident, accomplished writers by using literature as their foundation. The second edition includes brand-new "Your Turn Lessons," built around the gradual release of responsibility model, offering suggestions for demonstrations and shared or guided writing. Reflection is emphasized as a necessary component to understanding why mentor authors chose certain strategies, literary devices, sentence structures, and words. Dorfman and Cappelli offer new children's book titles in each chapter and in a carefully curated and annotated Treasure Chest. At the end of each chapter a "Think About It--Talk About It--Write About It" section invites reflection and conversation with colleagues. The book is organized around the characteristics of good writing--focus, content, organization, style, and conventions. The authors write in a friendly and conversational style, employing numerous anecdotes to help teachers visualize the process, and offer strategies that can be immediately implemented in the classroom. This practical resource demonstrates the power of learning to read like writers.
