What do homophones, homonyms and art have in common? Not much but the book, Cat Tale by Michael Hall does an amazing job of incorporating the two.
In this single, subject lesson plan, children create secondary colors from primary colors without even using a paintbrush. Inspired by three adventure-seeking cats who spend the afternoon chasing words, including homophones and homonyms, this book bridges reading skills and art.
The book provides wonderful visuals to support their tongue-twisting adventure and offers art students the chance to explore shapes, movement and self-expression. Perfect for children in grades 1-3.

- learn about movement through composition
The lesson plan includes:
