The Miraculous Journey of Arts-based Responses to Children’s Literature

If you are an educator in an elementary or middle school classroom, or if you work with young readers in any capacity, and are interested in learning about arts-based response activities, please check out a new page in our Educator’s Corner!

A link is provided to Catherine’s activity guide for arts-based activities related to Kate DiCamillo’s fantasy, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. However, these activities can be adapted for use with almost any work of children’s literature. Even if every student was reading a different book in the classroom, these activities could enhance their responses to those books.

Have you ever used the arts in your language arts classroom with the literature your students are reading? Or with book clubs? Drama, drawing, and dance are just several ways young readers can express their ideas and questions about literature they read. It is a wonderful journey for both educators and students!
