These fun children’s books connect science and literature. After reading an entertaining story students will be able to complete a corresponding science investigation.  

 

What will be done with my students

With the use of the Quirkles, I will be able to enrich student’s instructional experience and motivate them to extend their learning. My children will develop a love and appreciation of science and literacy. This resource will develop phonemic alliteration and build vocabulary while offering an engaging way to teach new science concepts with hands on experiments.  

 

Benefits to my students

There are many benefits of using the Quirkles in my classroom. Through the use of these 26 imaginative story books, students will be able to enhance their learning in phonics and follow up with a hands on inquiry based science experiment. Student’s abilities vary and this is a great resource for a diverse group of learners. Students will be able to master skills taught and work cooperatively while building a love for science and literacy. This program aligns with Florida’s state standards and Common Core. Lastly, students will be excited to learn with this beneficial tool.
