By Nancy I. Sanders
Science and reading go hand in hand when children dive into these adorable, reproducible mini-books! As they interact with each story, children develop essential science and reading comprehension skills. Rhyme, repetition, predictable text, and strong picture clues help kids understand what they read while learning science concepts and vocabulary. Topics include: animals, weather, plants, ocean life, the five senses, health, the solar system, and more. Includes hands-on practice activities that extend and reinforce learning. Linked to the national and state science standards!
Everything you need to make the mini-books is here. As children follow the directions to assemble the books, they’ll get additional practice in sequencing and building fine motor skills. Each reproducible mini-book includes patterns that children cut out and paste onto the pages. Suggestions for introducing the featured science concepts are provided to help you prepare children to complete the book successfully. The extension activities let you take the concept a step further to help reinforce it!
