There are times I miss teaching multiple classes of science now that I’m self-contained in 4th, but I’ve really grown to LOVE teaching reading. Now that we are going deeper into nonfiction, I have the opportunity to bring in some more science with my reading instruction. I’ve been working on a variety of resources for small group/centers time that include science!
I’ve got a cute, useful, versatile freebie for you all about nonfiction text structure and ocean animals. I’m using these in stations, but they will work great as independent work, group work, small group lessons, or minilessons! There are 5 graphic organizers to use with any books about the ocean as well as a text structures sort about dolphins.
