As a first grade teacher who uses the 2014 version of the Journey’s reading program, I often find myself scrambling for Science and Social Studies resources to make meaningful connections to the weekly text for my students. In hopes of meeting Common Core State Standards and providing authentic experiences for my students, I created this supplemental resource. I hope you will find it useful!
Included in this packet:
-Graphic organizers to brainstorm what students already know about the four seasons (circle map and KWL chart)
-Picture sort to introduce the four seasons as well as an additional four corner activity to use with them
-Picture sorts for the seasons for independent practice
-Label a tree through the season worksheet
-What Animals Do in Different Seasons mini-book
