Get ready to dig into rich reading vocabulary and alliterative writing as you use this sampler literacy pack to study one of my favorite picture books!
Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, a non-fiction picture book written by Kate Messner and illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal, is one of my favorite spring mentor texts. It can be used to integrate important Science concepts like the life cycle of plants, seasonal changes, the water cycle, and weather into your
Language Arts lessons.
Twelve (12) color vocabulary cards and a five-page (5) reading and writing response booklet is included for your use during a whole group guide reading lesson or as a literacy station activity.
