ABC Book with Foss Unit on Trees

Kindergarteners put together an ABC book based on a lesson in Ralph Fletcher and JoAnn Portalupi's book, Nonfiction Craft Lessons, and tied it in with the Foss Unit on trees. I printed off vocabulary words and photos to go with them. We read the book, Are Trees Alive?, by Debbie Miller, one of the supplemental books on the Foss website. I printed off the vocabulary words from the unit as well and used some of them for the ABC book. Kids wrote the word and colored a picture. They needed an example of a picture to copy. I also had to assign letters. I didn't assign letters the first time and got the same letter and picture from about 8 students. Oops. Remember to assign.

The pictures were displayed outside the library and zigzagged like an alphabet book for the author visit.
