Follow these 4 lesson plans where students use cooperative learning to create bulletin boards for each season: Seasons of the Apple Tree for Fall; Black, Brown and Polar Bears for Winter; Class Garden for Spring; and Ocean Life for Summer. The lessons include reading non-fiction books and providing evidence through reading comprehension. Students respond using vocabulary, writing skills, spelling, art and science to display each season. This display will enhance children's pride in their work and increase self esteem. These lessons are geared from kindergarten to second grade and meet the new ELA and Common Core Standards.
