"Story Connections" pairs perfectly with my "Step Into Stories" Read Aloud plans. (These are also sold bundled together at a discount.) This packet is an amazing way to integrate science, social studies, math and hands-on centers with your read-aloud for the week. In this packet you will find:
a science experiment with carrots that will be sure to engage your kids. There is a kid-friendly poster for the scientific method and recording sheet for students to draw their prediction, the experiment, and the conclusion.
a lesson an wants vs. needs which pairs perfectly with Jasper's need to eat carrots on the time. You have a whole class sort along with sorting mats for a center and a worksheet for independent practice.
an entire week of lesson plans for math! This week will be comparing numbers. You can differentiate as needed with easy to follow daily scripts and a weekly lesson plan already written with the TEKS and CCSS. There are mats and foldable readers included as well as chart pieces and a hands on collaborative partner activity every day. Suggested mentor text: by Stuart Murphy is recommended as it accompanies by Aaron Reynolds perfectly! It is not needed for the math plans but works great with them!
5 math centers and 5 literacy centers. These are also sold individually if you are just looking for some fun centers to pair with the story.
