Arlene is on the SCENE

It’s here, our REVISED Teacher’s Guide! Many teachers have found our Teacher’s Guide helpful to incorporate Arlene On the Scene into their language arts curriculum, from grades three to five. Some have asked us whether more printable worksheets were available–now they are!

In addition, many have pointed out that the activities and worksheets in the Guide naturally align with a wide range of Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. We thought it made sense to include these standards within the Guide as well.

Check it out, let us know what you think!

Kizirian Elementary School in Providence, RI has found Arlene On the Scene to be a great teaching tool in many areas. Bonus: it’s a fun read!

After purchasing a copy for all of the third graders, Kizirian Elementary dove right in. Using our free Teacher’s Guide and graphic organizers, students learned about disability and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, as well as broader topics such as the power of empathy and the beauty in embracing differences. Kids created their own campaign signs and even made their own Plumpy the Pumpkin!

They also used worksheets from the Teacher’s Guide to explore their own character and that of their peers. They practiced avoiding judgments based on outside appearances and using their empathy skills to support one another.

Finally, for Character Day, students dressed up like their favorite characters from Arlene On the Scene and Arlene, the Rebel Queen!
