Man-made or Natural Concept Book - Suggestions for Use


  • HOW TO USE CONCEPT BOOKS

  • Model with the coloured large A3 size booklet first - read and share the colour version book with the class first - keep as a class copy in reading corner.

  • An ideal activity incorporating many of the theme word cards - children classify a group of cards into natural or man-made.

  • Another way to classify is for children to go on a walk around the immediate area and write or draw 4 man-made things they found, and 4 natural things they found. Share and record as a class group - children use the recording or list to complete their concept book.

  • Instead of making into a book - print at 'multiple pages per sheet' print 4 in 1 - instructions here...

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.

  • Dear Donna, thanks so much for doing these, i remember when i asked for these last year when i was teaching my special ed kids, im now at another school in NW WA and they will be just as useful in the two classes im now teaching, (Year 3 and Year 4), as the kids here arent necessarily up to the rest of the ozzie kids out there.
