Life Cycle of the Pumpkin

From Stephanie's First Grade Fabulous Fish web site


Here is a brace map I created with my students




The Pumpkin Circle is a great book for learning about the life cycle. There is a Reading Rainbow video of The Pumpkin Circle that is really good.

I haven't heard of a "brace map" before. What is it?

It is a type of thinking map. Go to this web site to learn more. http://www.thinkingmaps.com/examples.php
Let me know if you have any questions after you look at the site. I would be happy to answer them.

I love the brace map. I was wondering if you would share the labels you made for the project. I am teaching pumpkins this week and this lesson will fit perfectly. I love how my ELL students will learn vocabulary and "see" the meaning of the words.

S. Parker- Let me check to see if they are saved on my school computer today. If so, I will send them. What is your email address?
