To introduce our next unit I wrote six blank lines on the board and had students guess letters from the alphabet to reveal what we will be learning about next. If they got a letter correct, I put the letter in the right spot on the board. If a letter was guessed that was not in the mystery word, I wrote it underneath. After several guesses our new unit all about PLANTS was revealed! We went on to discuss what we already know about plants, what we want to learn and then read a story about how a plant grows from a seed into the plant. We are looking forward to the fun we will have with plants this week!
