Adrienne’s OLLI (Online Learning Lesson Idea) #2 – If I Built A School

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a restful weekend and were able to take a break from planning your online lessons and enjoyed some time with family and perhaps some outdoor fun.  I am trying to do something for my mind, body, and soul every day and it’s definitely helping!

Well, I got a lot of positive response to my first OLLI ( I’m an acronym queen, so had to make one for this!  It stands for “Online Learning Lesson Ideas“) so I thought I would continue with a new OLLI – complete with an anchor book, lesson idea, and activity page.

If I Built a School by Chris Van Dusen is the third book in a series which includes If I Built a Car and If I Built a House. Highly entertaining book and a perfect choice for activating that imagination pocket!  In the story, Jack takes his teacher on an imaginary tour of his dream school.  His imaginary school is filled with wild, epic experiences,  including puppies that greet you in the morning, skydiving in the gym, and three story tall slides to get you to and from classes.  Love the retro-future style artwork (reminds me of The Jetsons!) and the rhyming is catchy and fun! (reminiscent of Dr. Seuss in the best possible way)  This book is so creative and will inspire imaginative designing and writing!  Great addition to your STEAM collection!

Here is a read-aloud of the story on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQFDyHmf9Bo

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week, everyone!  You are doing a great job!

Stay tuned for another #OLLI later this week!
