Vocabulary Write the Room: Space Set

Vocabulary Write the Room: Space Set

This is a set of write the room cards with words and pictures of space vocabulary. Includes: - 24 cards - 2 recording sheets The recording sheets are organized so that cards 1-12 appear on the first page and 13-24 appear on the second page. This means that you could do one large write the room activity with all 24 cards, or split it into two smaller activities with 12 cards each. My students like to save their recording sheets in their writing folders and use them as a word wall.

Moon Phases Nonfictional Text and Craft Project

Moon Phases Nonfictional Text and Craft Project

Learn about the moon using the informational text. Make the phases of the moon craft activity to illustrate what you've read about the moon. Perfect for first and second grade. One of my personal favorite science projects, this would make a great addition to a science interactive notebook. After studying about the phases of the moon, the students can make this moon clock to show the different phases of the moon and the order in which they occur. The circular clock also reinforces the idea of cycles in nature. This download includes: *A nine-page booklet that teaches about the moon phases and some basic moon information *Directions *Pieces to make the clock *A finished sample You need to supply brads and paper plates.
