I bet you're hearing from administrators......"NO MORE WORKSHEETS OR RUN-OFFS! WE EXPECT TO SEE STUDENT GENERATED WORK!"
These "kid-friendly" illustrations were designed as a model for TEACHERS to use during whole-group instruction, mini-lessons or as "posters" in workstations. These Properties of Matter (Colors, Textures, Sizes and Shapes) can be identified, defined, discussed and drawn with YOU! My students create, illustrate and label these in their spiral notebooks, as I demonstrate each drawing, step by step. Writing the words AND illustrating an original picture to match, help those early readers/learners be successful!
Our Science notebooks can also be used as a "word wall" resource during our daily writing activities, as well!
