The TLC Lessons books were created for kindergartners to teach the kindergarten curriculum. However, they have been successfully used in classes from preschool to 3rd grade as well as in ESL and special education classes.

The TLC directed art lessons are designed to help the children develop their self confidence and creative ability. The children are given only squares and rectangles to create pictures. The children learn to cut circles, ovals and triangles from squares and rectangles. They learn how things fit together, can be transformed, and can be taken apart. Once they have an understanding of how shapes work they become creative. All of the children begin with the same materials and follow the same directions, but the results are individual and no two creations look alike.

The TLC directed art lessons help children:

  • Learn to Follow Oral and Visual Directions
  • Acquire an Understanding of How Shapes Work
  • Develop Fine-Motor Skills
  • Strengthen Eye-Hand Coordination
  • Learn Color and Shape Recognition
  • Develop an Awareness of Spatial Relationships
  • Learn to Work Individually and Independently

Step-by-step illustrations show simply and clearly how each cut and paste lesson is done. The lessons can be directed step-by-step to the whole group or modeled for independent use.

"TLC teaches across the curriculum, math, literature, science and social studies. The lessons are not just fun, but meaningful and cover many of your benchmarks". —California

Theme Books consist of a collection of stand alone cut and paste lessons that may be used to enhance a particular season or theme. The lessons can be used to create an attractive classroom environment or to illustrate Big Books for the classroom. The lessons can be directed step-by-step to the whole group or modeled for independent use in a center. Some Theme Book lessons can be saved and assembled into a child’s own book.
Example: The two Rhyme Books, ABC Animals, and Fairy Tales.

Make-A-Books consist of a collection of cut and paste lesson pages that when assembled create individual reading books that may be used when learning about different areas of the curriculum. The lessons can be directed step-by-step to the whole group or modeled for independent use in a center. The pages are collected and saved until the book is ready to be assembled.

"I have been using the TLC books for several years. I teach in international schools and have found these to be excellent resources to teach vocabulary, spatial relationship skills, scissor skills and even the proper way to use glue!" —A TLC Fan
