This set makes a great addition on the topic of "Classifying and Categorizing" in reading. The set includes the following:
Essential Question Posters (3)
Vocabulary (for example, "alike," "similar," different," "groups..."
Unit Essential Question
AND... all the materials to make an ANCHOR CHART! We use SCOTT FORESMAN READING STREET, so this ties in perfectly with the read aloud, "MISS BINDERGARTEN GOES ON A FIELD TRIP." If you don't use Reading Street, this book is also available in many libraries and books stores. Miss Bindergarten is quite famous! :-)
For the anchor chart, students will create a FOUR SQUARE in which they classify and categorize all things related to baking. The categories include: Ingredients, Baking Tools, Jobs in a Bakery, Things to Bake. Each category includes four cute clip art pictures (16 total) to sort and classify into the correct category. I created a large four square with the title of "CLASSIFY" in block letters on the top (also included in this set), and then we built the sentence, "When I classify, I put objects that are alike together into categories." The key words in this sentence (alike, classify, categories) are included in this set, as well). We then made a large four square and glued the category labels and pictures into the correct box on the four square. And... PRESTO! An anchor chart for Classify/categorize! All of my anchor charts are hanging on a window blind in the classroom so we can constantly review and revisit.
