Science and social studies are integrated with the modeled reading and writing lessons. Whole group reading, writing, and science or social studies are centered around a the same theme, such as exploring plant life cycle, observing the effects of magnetic force, or reading maps. During independent work time, I provide opportunities for students to read more about the theme or conduct hands-on activites in order to reinforce lessons. Children learn by doing, not just sitting.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
