This K-2 interactive Common Core aligned thematic unit promotes word identification and basic knowledge of the farming profession. It is a completely self-contained Tech App providing a seamless integration of technology into the classroom or homeschool. The Tech App works on any PC having a Windows operating system and retains its interactive capabilities when displayed on a monitor, standard projector, interactive projector, or interactive whiteboard.
This thematic unit contains 26 pages including a table of contents, a theme definition page, a theme related story, an anchor chart, and theme related activities and exercises. The interactive activities and exercises include comprehensive skills and strategies that students are confronted with on standardized tests. Each section can be used as a mini-lesson, brainstorming tool, concept review, worksheet instruction, writing example, or test prep.
This Tech App develops reading and vocabulary skills and helps students remember connections between words / concepts and subject matter. It solicits active participation and discussion by students and displays the type of prompting some students require. It can be used as a tool for individual learning, in group learning centers, an instruction aide for the teacher, or self-directed learning.
Common core standards have been adopted by 46 states to ensure that all students are prepared for college or a career, regardless of where they attended school. This curriculum encourages integration of all subject areas in a lesson and more student participation. All my products facilitate both goals.
