This cute EARTH DAY ELA BOOK is perfect for teaching VOCABULARY about EARTH DAY. It is one of 5 books associated with our APRIL WORD OF THE DAY calendar. Your kids can learn words like RECYCLE, CONSERVE and REUSE in a fun PIGGY BACK SONG format! These WORD OF THE DAY books make a great literacy center. The teacher guide explains how well our April calendar goes with these books. We have also included real EARTH DAY photos and questions about EARTH DAY.
You can also use the empty boxes on each page to highlight a phonetic feature in the words or the students can write the definition of the words or draw a picture of the word. I have been using the boxes to have my students write 3 words with a phonetic feature. An example I used is: For Earth Day, the feature was -ay so my students wrote words with -ay like say, way, pray, stay, etc. The great thing about this is they start noticing the blends and vowel patterns we have talked about as well. I start all my guided reading groups with these books. We spend the first few minutes doing this, so my students are learning great content vocabulary and about phonics all at the same time! It has really helped my students with reading and writing!
