Intended Learning Outcomes
5. Understand and use basic concepts and skills.
Observation, description, classification, segmentation and blending
Invitation to Learn
Ask students, “What is sand?”
Keep a list of the attributes listed so students can see how the words are spelled. If necessary, buddy up students so they have a resource to help with spelling and reading.
Look for rocks at home and practice describing their attributes.
Can students describe rocks using appropriate terminology?
