This cute WORD of the DAY COLUMBUS VOCABULARY BOOK is great for your social studies unit, and is perfect for teaching VOCABULARY. It is one of 5 books associated with our WORD OF THE DAY OCTOBER CALENDAR.
In addition to the color version of the book, there is a black and white version with empty boxes for students to write in. For instance, I use the box to teach phonics. My students write words with the same word chunk or phonetic feature as the vocabulary word on that page. They actually look for the features themselves each day. They love coming up with words to write in their square boxes. There are also real photographs that match the vocabulary words. The real photographs are great support for ELL students! They will be able to match the vocabulary words at the top of the page to the photograph of it. There is a teacher guide with ideas included. I have my students place these books in their book baskets to practice reading.
There is also a page they can illustrate and add to their poetry folders.
Parents love seeing the books come home, and have commented that their children come home singing the songs as they read the books.
Students learn SAILOR, VOYAGE, EXPLORER, OCEAN, WORLD, COLUMBUS, and DISCOVER in a fun PIGGY BACK SONG format!
