FREE MISC. LESSON – “Clifford, the Big Red Dog – Free LanguageART Craftivity”

by ART ACTION -Laurie Carpenter

1st – 3rd Grade


Clifford, the Big Red Dog


EVERYONE LOVES CLIFFORD -JUST EVERYONE! And this free lesson, “CLIFFORD, THE BIG RED DOG CRAFTIVITY…AFTER READING THE STORY”, provides the primary age children with an introductory experience in my LanguageART approach to teaching…in which art and literature work together. After hearing the teacher read the story of Clifford, the Big Red Dog, and discussing the story, the students will then enjoy a simple cut and paste project. They will learn many basic art skills, have a chance to add creative details of their own, and of course have fun! This project can be used in the art room, classroom, or as a home school activity. These links will explain the LanguageART approach in detail, and show you a reduced price bundle of Clifford products.

Rhythm in Poetry



Rhythm in Poetry


This lesson includes Emily Dickenson’s “If I Could Not Stop for Death” as well as Pearl Jam’s “Last Kiss” lyrics to discover (hands on) the importance of rhythm in poetry. Often, Language Arts teachers are weaker in this area because it is a little more technical than merely looking at the language.

The lesson includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activities
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key

The entire unit contains 6 pages and it will most likely take two periods to complete.

I hope you enjoy it!
