Scarry, cir. 1990
Scarry and wife Patsy, 1951
Scarry: “I would say [I am a] fun-man disguised as an educator…Everything has an educational value if you look for it. But it’s the fun I want to get across.”
During the 1980s and 90s, many of Scarry’sBest Ever stories were converted into short animated programs. On March 14, 1994, an animated series based on Richard Scarry’s world premiered. The Busy World of Richard Scarry would continue for 3 more years, delighting children and bringing life to Scarry’s unique illustrations and stories.
Teaching Idea: First Grade
Social studies in first grade has a strong emphasis on family and community. Some competency goals from the NC Standard Course of Study include applying economic concepts to school and the community, how different cultures work to earn money, understanding the roles of individuals and leaders in the community. Students could use the book to identify various jobs people may work in order to earn money. They can use the section on home to identify jobs at home and what role they play in their own home. Using the school section, students can look at and relate to different jobs in school. Perhaps they could create jobs for the classroom and run them, or could list ways of helping at home and try to do them for one week. They could ask their parents what they do for a living and do a report describing their job. You could possibly even run a mini-job fair or have parents come in and talk about their jobs to the students.
