Earth Day will be here before we know and what better way to teach our students about this special holiday than having them create their very own Earth Day Emergent Reader.
There are so many fun ways to incorporate Earth Day into our curriculum. We enjoy laughing and playing our Earth Day Bingo and reading our stacks of Earth Day Books. We explore more with our Editable Earth Day Puzzles that are perfect for literacy and math units.
To really show what we know about Earth Day we dive in with our science unit Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We love learning firsthand what we can do to save the earth.
How to use the Earth Day Emergent Reader
This resource will be the perfect addition to your lesson plans and allow your students to combine social studies, science, and language arts.
The Earth Day Emergent Reader contains 11 different pages to help teach students about this special holiday.
It walks students through a very basic introduction to what Earth Day is about. Each page contains one to two sentences and then has an image above it.
There is a color and black and white version for students included in this freebie. You can print off a color version to go in the classroom library and print off black and white versions for each of your students.
If you choose to do black and white, you can have your students color their Earth Day Emergent Reader prior to reading. I always find this helps introduce students to the material, while also providing them with some ownership over their own book.
If you use the Earth Day Emergent Reader in the classroom while you are learning about this special holiday, you can send it home with your students to add to their book collection at home.
If you do not have time to incorporate Earth Day into your lesson plans this year, no worries! You can simply send the book home and have students complete it at home.
