apple investigation {free journal}

This week begins the start of my favorite few months of school {fall into winter holidays} with apples! Last year I shared my investigation journal but have updated it this year to share with you!  This journal naturally integrates science and literacy so you can work it into your lessons wherever you have the time or find it to best fit.

The first 5 pages teach your kids how to use their five senses to observe & explore things around them. The sentence starters make this book simple enough for even beginning kinders without being too overwhelming.  {independent writers can add an additional sentence in the space below or students can draw a picture to match the sentence.}

The additional pages at the end are optional and you can pick & choose as you like.  I think it's fun to display the finished journals on a ginormous tree looking as if they're ready to be picked.  :)

You can get your free copy at my TPT store!
