Teaching on a Shoestring
By: Russell Grigg & Helen Lewis



FEATURED TITLE OF THE MONTH

We take many everyday objects for granted. But in a time of ever-tightening school budgets these objects can be invaluable in affording low-cost, high-impact opportunities for learning. With these value-for-money principles in mind, Russell and Helen have packed this practical A-Z handbook to the brim with fun facts, inspiring ideas and exciting activities to help teachers make the best use of familiar objects as launch pads for effective learning.

Underpinned by solid theory, Teaching on a Shoestring investigates the learning potential of twenty-six inexpensive, readily available resources - from apples to ice cubes to zebra-patterned fabric - and shows how they can be exploited to develop in young learners the four skills widely regarded as essential in the twenty-first century: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

Tessie Tames Her Tongue
By: Melissa Martin & Charles Lehman



FEATURED KIDS TITLE OF THE MONTH

A book about learning when to talk and when to listen!

Tessie is bright and eager to share all the stories about her life. She talks to her parents, her little brother, the bus driver, her teacher, and her classmates. But when she gets chatty, she's loud . . . and talks with her mouth full of food . . . and doesn't give anyone else a chance to say what's on their minds. After her little brother complains and her classmates ignore her, Tessie knows it's time to tame her talkative tongue. With help from her school counselor, Tessie learns to talk less and listen more.

'Told with pedagogical humor and wisdom, Tessie discovers she has wonderful things to share alongside tools to take her tongue!'—Jesica DeHart, WanderingBookseller
