This month's blog hop is all about Science and we have joined many other fabulous bloggers to share with you some ideas, freebies and giveaways.
We LOVE science in my K room! Right now we have chick eggs in the incubator, butterflies coming next week and planting seeds happening right now! What fun! Every chance we get we try and integrate Science into our curriculum. One of our required assessments for kindergarten is for our students to write an expository paper. The writing prompt is "How do you plant a seed?" So before the kinders start to write, we read a lot of wonderful books about flowers and seeds. Here are a few:
From Seed to Plant by Gail GibbonsFrom Seed to Plant by Allan Fowler
Planting a Rainbow by Lois Elhert
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
After we do our planting and labeling parts of a plant, we write our expository paper. Here is the graphic organizer we use and an example of one filled out. This we are going to do next week.
This is one part of the Common Core Aligned Expository Writing packet that you can win by entering the raffle below. This writing was designed for Kindergarten but can easily be adapted for 1st and 2nd grade.
