Help each student learn positive Life Habits and build community in your classroom!

Lynne Beachner and Anola Pickett offer teachers this easy-to-use toolbox for discovering the innate strengths and talents and the unique learning styles of each student. With this knowledge, classrooms can celebrate the gifts of every student and teachers can facilitate a sense of connectedness with the group.

Drawing from Howard Gardner's landmark work, the authors offer more than a dozen activities specifically tailored to each of the eight multiple intelligences, for a total of 174 classroom activities. Each activity serves as a guide to developing learning strategies in the classroom and fostering relationships with students based on their individual strengths.

Easy-to-understand directions as well as suggestions for journal entries and discussion starters make this a powerful tool for the teacher who wants to bring out the best in every student. All activities are classroom tested and geared to a range of age groups. Common household and classroom supplies are used whenever materials are needed.

This time-saving book is organized into eight chapters, each focusing on one of the Multiple Intelligences. In addition, Life Habit activities are presented for specific grade levels.

Multiple Intelligences:

  • Verbal/linguistic
  • Mathematical/logical
  • Visual/spatial
  • Musical/rhythmical
  • Bodily/kinesthetic
  • Intrapersonal
  • Interpersonal
  • Naturalist

This is an essential resource for busy teachers who want to bring out the best in every student by putting Gardner's Multiple Intelligences into practice.

Index

"Teachers . . . will find the book useful in lesson planning and in developing an awareness that there is far more to teaching than just academics. I agree with the authors that fostering a strong sense of self-esteem and empathy for others in the classroom goes far in creating a higher achieving student at all age levels."
