Parts of the Sea Star (Starfish) Book & Card Set
If you're studying sea stars or anything about echinoderms, these are the materials you want! This discounted set features a species of sea star known as the Caribbean starfish, and includes one of each of our "Parts of" the Sea Star (Starfish) materials including (see images):
- Vocabulary Cards
- Definition Book
- 3-Part Cards
- Definition Cards
- Lesson plan included
This is a material that lasts for years and grows with the child.
Step 1: Introduce the vocabulary cards in 3-period vocabulary lessons.
Step 2: Read the book together.
Step 3: When the children begin reading non-phonetic words, introduce the 3-part cards.
Step 4: Once the children are reading more fluently, add in the definition cards. First, match the vocabulary card pictures to the full definition (stage 1). Use the book as a control so the child can check their work independently. Next, when they are ready for more challenge, repeat this lesson but use the stage 2 definition cards (definitions cut into the term and the definition). Finally, use stage 3 definition cards (definitions cut into the term, first-half of the definition, and second-half of the definition).
All materials in this set are fully laminated and ready for use. Created by a Montessori teacher. Eco-printed by parents/teachers/students in our rural New England office.
Made in the USA.
