I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
We spent a few days in science talking about seasons. We tied this to patterns in events. We read several nonfiction books about each individual season and did a whole group seasons sort. Then we read and learned about the ways trees change through the seasons. We worked together to make a graphic organizer to show the circular pattern of the seasons. We also read The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree and made a fold-able to show the seasons of the apple tree. You can grab the seasons sort here.
(I was out sick the day my kids did this sort- hence the reason it is crooked and not well done.)
