Infographics! How cool is that? Carson Dellosa has a cool new tool for us to use! This book fits great into the new in-depth reading that Common Core is looking for. This covers many different content areas. I think I found one for almost all the content areas that I need to cover- including math! The pages are perforated of heavy card stock! I’ll be taking the book apart and putting each card in with the materials for the units so I don’t forget to use one. The pictures are colorful but not over stimulating. Well labeled too! That is another bonus – use it as a modeling tool! The topics range from insects to dinosaurs to video games – with tons in between! And the questions are on the back of the pictures! This will be a great resource to start a topic or to end a topic. It will be integrating reading and content knowledge.
Did I mention hitting the standards? What about:
· With prompting and support, retell key details of text that support a provided main idea.
· Answer questions about a text.
· With prompting and support, make connections between information in a text and personal experiences.
· With prompting and support, answer questions to connect illustrations to the written word.
· With prompting and support, actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding
Just to name a few!
I am (almost) looking forward to going back to school to use this great resource! What a way to increase critical thinking. Are you like me? I want to ask those higher level thinking questions and then in the moment I can’t think of any (unless I wrote them down before hand) or I get distracted by something (shoe tying, bathroom breaks, etc.) and I forget to go back and ask! Please tell me I am not alone in that! Anyway – these cards are a great starting point of questions and discussions. It will make it easier for me to continue on the same path of higher order questions. Thank you!
I’m thinking that the few that are not covered in the curriculum I have, will be great to leave in a sub tub! Keep them thinking when I am out sick.
Well, Carson Dellosa has done it again! LOVE these! Thanks so much!
