The Life of a Watermelon
This book was written as part
The Virtual Vine.
It carries the reader through the life of a watermelon. It would
be a great addition to a Watermelon or Plant Unit. Most of the text
follows the sentence frame: This is a _______ from the _______.
So the book is an excellent reinforcer of the sequential process, and although
the pages are not numbered, each page builds on the one prior to it.
All text is supported by picture cues.
The book was created in
a full page, landscape format. It was designed as a watermelon "shape
book" to be bound at the top, therefore the pages will flip up. It
was also designed for the front and back cover to be reproduced on green
construction paper. A "realistic" back cover is provided as well,
so when the book is viewed from the back, it looks like the back side of
the watermelon. The students cut out each page and color the pictures.
All text is at the bottom
of the pages and is written in an easy to read, expanded format.
The sight words used are: the, of, a, this, is, from.
