Science Verse by Jon Scieszka
Make Science fun with Jon Scieszka's poetic picture book, Science Verse! I think, this would be an incredible way to introduce Science to your class at the beginning of the year. Helping students understand that science is everywhere and what exciting things you will be learning about: dinosaurs, stars, planets, food chain, human body, Big Bang Theory, and more! In addition, I would return to poems when you begin discussing the topic. There are many that will assist students with the new concept or remember important facts.

I absolutely love each and every poem in this book; however, my favorites are Twas the Night (Big Bang Theory), Why Scientists Don't Write Nursery Rhymes (various topics), and What's the Matter? (Liquid, Solid, and Gas). Each poem is based on a science topic delivered in a familiar way; you may recognize nursery rhymes, classic songs, and famous poems.
The inside book flap mentioned a real treat, there is another book written by Scieszka entitled, Math Curse. I have found a reading of this book on YouTube, Nana's Story Time. Anyway to integrate literature into ALL subjects to assist students in understanding new topics while creating another opportunity to fall in love with reading.
I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller. My goal is to read at least one children's literature book everyday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
