PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How to use this text:
Feed two birds with one feeder by integrating science and language arts. This text follows the Kindergarten Next Generation Science Standards in the order they are given. You can also integrate the Kindergarten Common Core State Standards by using this informational text to practice language arts informational text standards. It is a read-aloud that contains both content and a suggested instructional framework. It is above the reading level of the average kindergarten student, but it is full of sight words and helpful visuals, making it a good text for shared reading as well. It is meant to be a “close read text” to be read and re-read on multiple occasions.
It is full of questions. Instead of breezing past the questions, pause at each one the first time you encounter it. If you have a group of students, have them turn to an elbow partner and talk about their answers, then turn to another partner. Ask who wants to share with the group what their PARTNER said. This sets up an expectation for active listening. Write their answers down. Refer to those ideas later to cross off ideas you have “outgrown.” Circle those that have been confirmed by textual evidence or experimentation.
In addition you’ll find ideas for experiments and engineering challenges embedded in some sections. These, along with an assessment idea for each idea can help you understand how ALL students understand concepts. This may be of special concern for teachers using Marzano evaluation systems. However, don’t limit yourself to standard ways of responding to assessments. Students can write, draw, act out/perform, or video or audio record responses (see other ideas below). Their audiences can be the teacher, peers, younger students, parents, or the public through a website.
I hope you and your students find this product educational and enjoyable.
