I’m very particular about the Tier 2 vocabulary words I teach the children this year – my final research project for my master’s degree is about vocabulary acquisition, development, and teaching. I love when I teach a word like landmark and the children continue to use the word!
We paid particular attention to the sequence of the story and made an adorable story map:
We read some other books that had armadillo’s in them as well and compared/contrasted the setting and characters in each story.
We read some non-fiction books about armadillo’s and made an armadillo tree map.
We also did a directed drawing of an armadillo using directions from Jan Brett’s website.
I think they turned out super cute!
I know we did some math problem solving with this unit too – but I forgot to take pictures! It’s been a few weeks since we did this book, so I forgot! I’ll try to remember this week to snap some and add them to the post!
Don’t forget to check out the post below for all of the great organizational ideas from all of our bloggy friends! I’ll slowly make my way through them! Link up if you have a great idea!
