Dreamers and Doers Will Find Inspiration in Shoe Magic!


Do you dream often? Do you dream about your future? Do you have dreams waiting to wake up? Whatever you do… Wherever you go…Whoever you grow up to be depends on the steps you take. In taking steps, shoes become a vital part. Toe shoes can point to a career in dancing…Sandals conjure warm-weather pleasures…Sturdy work boots can hold one steady once they are ready to fix the world.

In this unit Shoe Magic you will research the history of shoes. Various reading skills and strategies to understand and interpret a genre of literature, poetry, will be explored. Writing activities, problem solving activities, creative and critical thinking activities make up the enrichment of the unit.
