I have to be honest…I have not taught ALL of my SCIENCE standards. And yes, animal classification is a standard.
Somewhere, I have a new Science series, but my new ELA series takes up most ALL of our day…& Math… so, as any good teacher ( who LOVES science & writing) would do INTEGRATE!
We wrote informational writing about animal classifications!
And then we PAINTED them!
Living things…yaadaa. yaadaa. yaadaa…NO!
WE WROTE ABOUT REAL ANIMALS!
My EL’s had a hard time with the new vocabulary, (Thank You Project GLAD), we did new academic language, made charts, filled out graphic organizers, did shared writing, sloppy copies, and a final draft!
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.
