See that? That's FRAN-ZEE-A, for those of you who don't speak French. Muy fancy. Look closer and see why it's such a great buy:
Yes! I am! I am reducing my carbon footprint! You're welcome, Earth.
#4: All this Earth-saving inspired me. The third grade teachers in my school asked me if I could pick up a group of students who have been successful in test-taking and I thought that sounded like fun. I decided to put together a group of third graders and a group of fourth graders to work on Earth Day!
I love Earth Day stuff.
This is what we started on.
We watched a BrainPop about conservation and then we read a brief article. From the article, we charted out this information:
#5. We wrote an Earth Day paragraph using sentence frames. Many of the students are ELLs and are working on developing their English. To help them build their sentence structure, I used sentence frames.
First we wrote four sentences using the information we learned from the video and the article.
This was the example: "Earth Day is... a special day to celebrate the Earth and practice conservation! Conservation means... using our natural resources carefully. You can help by... turning off the water when you brush your teeth! This can help us... use less water and protect our resources.
Then we used the sentence frames in green to create diversity in their writing. On Monday, they're going to publish.
