Changing How We Use Energy

Changing How We Use Energy

In this lesson students find out which appliances in their classroom use energy and work together to create agreements for the classroom about switching off and adjusting these appliances. The lesson ends with students making informative stickers for these appliances. Students will use comprehension strategies to build literal meaning about key ideas and information in texts. They’ll be able to identify way to reduce energy use of items in class, clearly express instructions about how to use an appliance and work in groups to plan a text.

Parts Of A Horse - Montessori 3 Part Cards

Parts Of A Horse - Montessori 3 Part Cards

These are traditional Montessori reading classification cards. There are control cards with the image and word together, a separate image picture and a separate word label for the image. Children read and label the image and check their work with the control card. The card for the entire horse is in color. The “parts of” cards have the horse in gray scale with the featured part in light brown. The parts featured include the horse, torso or barrel (whichever you prefer as I have included both), neck, mane, ears, eyes, nostrils, forelegs, hindlegs and tail. I have also included a line drawing of the image for the children to use to make their own “parts of” booklet. Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my work! Mary
