Must Read Mentor Text: ScienceSaurus and A Peek at My Week

Linking up with my cute friends Amanda & Stacia for their fabulous Must Read Mentor Text linky party!
 
The following text is more of a science resource that could be used multiple ways.
ScienceSaurus
We are currently studying energy and this book has multiple pages on the different forms of energy.


My students will fill in this Energy Fill In using the information from this text.
They can draw pictures, cut examples from magazines, write examples, definitions, etc. It's up to them to be creative! Makes a great bulletin board display!
You can grab it for FREE right here! Please be kind and leave feedback if you download. :)
 
(The following samples are from last year).

Closer view of a student sample: 
 
This is a perfect center to incorporate during reading. My students will work on this activity this week. We also have tomorrow off (it's not a snow day, but we'll take it!)
This is our last week to prepare for our BIG writing test the following Tuesday, so we'll be reviewing, playing writing games, and doing all the last minute activities for the big day!
Linking up with my funny friend Jennifer for her Peek at my Week party!

  2. Two words...totally awesome! I love this idea for any post reading nonfiction topic. In fact, I think I'll make one for Biography...you could have the kids record facts they learn. I <3 this idea!

  3. Joanne, ScienceSaurus looks great! I have added it to my very large Amazon Wishlist. :-) I also love the idea of writing in the word energy! You could do this with any science strand. Thanks for another awesome idea!

  4. I do not teach science, but I am going to send this link to my partner teachers. They have limited resources for their energy unit (new to fourth grade this year).

    I am going to find a way to use that fill in with a social studies word. I love it!

    Thank you!

  5. I love the ENERGY idea, Joanne! So versatile! Like Carla said, it could be used for any unit of study. I think I'll try one for ROCKS. Enjoy your day off!

  6. I love pairing Science Saurus with everything in Science. It's very kid friendly! We've already done Energy, but we are going to go back over it again. Thanks for the resource my sweet high-heeled hero! You're right...the alliteration is great...lol!
