Work Those Maps: Build Writing
I have my students practice reading the map filled with their words. Then we build it in a pocket chart which provides them with important practice with the language of the map. You can put all your academic vocabulary here and the children will have an opportunity to use it, in context. From here they are making their own map and drawing the American flag. We had several guided drawing lessons so they can do this with ease. However, those stars can be rough road for some... just sayin'. So I give them other options because the goal is not to make amazing stars!
