Seasonal Vocabulary





I borrowed this idea from littlemissglamourgoestokindergarten.blogspot.com.  She has fantastic ideas and I will be extending this idea for next year.  The long and short of it is, when the season is changing have students brainstorm a list of words that remind them of the season.  Next, a group of children can create illustrations for each word to help even the non-reader understand what the words mean.  Then, have some sort of cut out construction book to match the season at a Science table for students.  After that, have students take turns visiting the station and choosing a handful of words to use in sentences and create illustrations to match the words on the page.  Finally, create an in class bulletin board for decoration to display student work.  The differentiation is in student choice.  You could also provide sentence starters for struggling students.  Enjoy!
