Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Targeted for elementary teachers, drama teachers, and teaching artists, Tangram Tales contains 25 adapted tales from around the world appropriate for grades 2 through 6. Folktales are illustrated with tangrams. Teachers can tell these stories in the classroom as part of a math unit or have the students perform the stories. A reproducible tangram pattern is provided. In Dianne's Tangram Story Theater Process, students use tangrams to illustrate adapted world folktales. Using the provided scripts, students perform stories using tangrams. Students are given roles as storytellers, tangram artists, and chorus members. The class' story is then presented in grade level story presentations. Other tangram methods such as individual student tangram tales and student-created tangram tales are shared as well. How tangram tales connect language arts and math is demonstrated. The artwork of the book consists of simple black and white spot illustrations for each story, showing the tangram figures that depict the stories. Grades 2-6.
