Learning about Plants
Learning about plants in your primary classroom can be so much fun! Here are a few ideas and lessons, plus a free file for you!
Read alouds are a fun way to introduce a topic and get students excited about plants and to learn a few things, too! Here are a few books to check out.
This last book doesn’t teach much about plants, but I saw it and had to share it with you! This sweet story is about planting a seed of kindness… what a great way to tie in some character-building during your study of plants!
Videos are another fun way to share information with students. These are especially useful if you are remote learning!
Tops and Bottoms is another great story to read during your study of plants. Activities for this book are included in our Engaging Readers Bundle for April.
There are 5 reading comprehension activities that relate to this story. Students develop reading strategies and practice retelling the story, making inferences, and more!
There are digital resources, too! You can assign these activities through Seesaw or through Google Classroom with PowerPoints for student responses.
Guided Reading book
You can even continue learning about plants in your guided reading groups! This nonfiction reader is available in levels AA-J so you can easily meet the needs of your students. Lesson plans, word work, & a sentence study are included, along with the leveled readers.
Have fun practicing measuring and graphing skills with these FREE printables! You can snag this free file at the end of the post.
I am super excited about these NEW, interactive digital books for science! Students learn and practice science vocabulary and ELA skills. There are so many fun topics already added with more coming soon!
The interactive science readers are preloaded to Seesaw and Google Slides! You can find the bundle here:
