I really enjoy science and I LOVE teaching reading!! I think it is especially fun to incorporate science content into my daily reading plans while still teaching reading skills, strategies, and the common core standards! My students get so excited when I introduce a new theme. It REALLY gets them excited about learning! Before introducing the theme, I always play 20 guesses or put a representation of the theme in a mystery bag. Of course, for this spider unit I will have a REAL spider!!!
