Get students out of their seats and on their feet and optimize the mind-body learning experience. Class Phonics: Animals in Motion is an excellent way to boost the brain with movement and integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, language arts, and mathematics). The students will not realize they are learning because they are having so much fun moving. 

Features student and teacher flash cards focusing on science, math, sign language, phonics, and blends. Teacher flash cards are an 11" x 17" format – easily visible by students – while student flash cards can be used in teams or in centers. The teacher flash cards are held by a wire rack that can be set on a desk or countertop, enabling easy flipping. The rack also helps to store the teacher flash cards and other program components.

The colorful Phonics Workbook provides letter-by-letter connections to writing, math, language arts, reading, science, and social studies. Additionally, the teacher guide provides ideas for classroom implementation, including activities such as Animal Alphabetize, Volleying Vowels, Animal Classification, and many more. Even in the classroom environment, many of the exercises can be done following the Phonics DVD or using the background music from the Phonics Music CD.

Correlations to Common Core Math and English and Next Generation Science Standards are provided. The package features 12 sets of student flash cards, a set of teacher flash cards, Class Phonics Teacher’s Guide, 24 Phonics Workbooks, Workbook Companion PowerPoint, Phonics Music CD, Phonics DVD, and a 23" tall wire rack. Serves 24 students.

PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

  • Explain the difference between compression and tension forces.
  • Explain the difference between a strut and a tie.
  • Name two geometric shapes that are strong.
  • Name two natural forces that can cause structural damage.

ACTIVITIES

  • Read about structures and experiment with geometric shapes.
