So if you are using Open Court Reading you will be able to relate to this post on Shadows. This is a topic that is hard to do with five year olds. Here are a few simple maps we made with the kids that were right at their level. The one on Bear Shadow is to help them understand different settings. A parent came in to do the silhouettes you see. The kids loved guessing who each student was and we filled our room and office with these. What a beautiful way to decorate.
