Last week I shared about the efforts my co-teaching partner and I took to create an indoor hike experience for our kindergarten students, with my post, An Indoor Hike?
The goal for the following day was to use the eggs as a word box for the tables to support their writing. Using a matching poster of their writing page, I modeled the activity and then the students were asked to write about what they saw on their hike. The eggs as word box worked perfectly! 🙂 The hands-on word box increased confidence and oral language use…something I didn’t anticipate. It also provided a great opportunity for the student to use their latest sight word “and” in an authentic way. Yay! 🙂
…and do you know a great fictional story in science to read to expand this lesson? I do!
