FEELING STRESSED

TEACHING V-8 MOMENTS

BEHAVIOR 101

Integrating Science & Language Arts


It seems like there is never enough time in the day to get everything done that we want to get done.  Every year there are more expectations put on us.  The school day isn't getting longer, so what is a teacher to do?  Whenever I get that overwhelmed feeling, I try to do two things.  First, I make a list.  For some reason, seeing everything on paper helps me see things more clearly.  Once I see everything on paper, I look for ways that I can integrate my lessons.  There are many ways that you can do this.  For example:

*Use science or social studies vocabulary words in your sentences when you are giving a spelling test.
*Here is a tip to help you find time to teach handwriting.
*Integrate handwriting and science by having your students write sentences about science vocabulary definitions or science facts.

The two packets below are an easy way to integrate science and language arts.  These are a great way to add informational text lessons to your lesson plans.  Plus, these are student directed . . . how great is that?!!!!








 This packet is on the 3rd grade reading level and is aligned with 2nd - 4th grade Common Core Standards.

It includes a center sign that has a white background so you can save on ink.





 Directions for the center are included so your students won't interrupt your small group lesson.

There is a black and white version and a colorful version.  Cards are stacked and placed on the page above.

 After students make sentences using all of the cards, they will write their sentences on one of the writing assignment pages above.  There are three pages to choose from so you can differentiate the assignment.

I included a primary handwriting assignment in case you are using this packet for enrichment.























This packet contains 24 colorful and 24 black and white word cards.  Students will shuffle the cards and put them on the Sentence Shuffle page.  They will take one card from each stack to make a sentence.  Sentences can be real or nonsense sentences.























There are 8 Built It-Write It-Draw It assignments.  Students will practice reading, handwriting, sentence structure, and fine-motor skills.  This can be used as a literacy center or used for homework.

Four Lift & Learn assignments can be used with interactive journals or used in a writing center.
