Amy Thomas, First Grade, Reedy Creek Elementary School

Curriculum Units (pdf)


This curriculum unit is designed to be the framework for multiple science concepts used with the balanced literacy component shared reading. Shared reading will teach the scientific method vocabulary with hand gestures that will lead to meaningful experiences through hands on exploration. Scholars will be taught how to question, grow ideas, observe, and ask questions. They will construct and acquire their own knowledge in different ways so that each scholar can transfer their own learning into other content areas of education and throughout daily encounters in life.
