This TREES Book goes perfectly with the ASSET science TREES module, but it can also be used with any science curriculum. I start by reading the book "My Very Own Tree." In my kindergarten, we adopt a class tree and observe the changes throughout the four seasons. Each season, we color the quadrant on the front cover and then turn to the page for the season.
You will notice only the trunk is pictured. I use this to teach how to draw a realistic tree. Student begin by tracing the trunk in brown and coloring it in. Then, I teach them how to draw branches by drawing "big Y'ss and little y's" off of each branch. I do this step-by-step and they amaze me every time. I also teach them how to draw a horizon with grass/snow.
Two formats are included plus BONUS blank writing pages!
By the time we get to the Spring Tree, the children can draw a tree quite well. This makes for a great Science Keepsake at the end of the year!
