Teaching opposite positional words is not as easy as you think. Children will enjoy learning this concept as they recite and read this unforgettable rhyming text about Humpty Dumpty.
Humpty Dumpty Learns About Positions will help you in teaching opposite positional words to your students.
Opposite positional words are presented in this edition of the Mother Goose meets Mother Nature series. The familiar Mother Goose rhyme of Humpty Dumpty is repeated in the fun text when Humpty cracks out of his egg, hangs his feet over the edge of the cliff, jumps off the ledge, and then flies above and around the sky. The other eggs try to get Humpty back in the nest. Each positional word is italicized in the text to make it easy for students to find and identify them. As they locate each positional word, they will be able to identify if it is an opposite to the other positional words in the text. Students will learn that positions, as well as directions, can be opposite with each other as they watch Humpty emerge from his egg and learn to fly.
The resource includes a printable 20 page guided reading book and a PowerPoint Show of the book. In addition, the text is easy for young readers to recite, track, and read. Additionally, the book includes full-color illustrations by award-winning author and illustrator, Dawn Stephens.
You can download this creative teacher resource and print an individual book for each student. Further, the students will read the story as a group when presented on a large screen with the PowerPoint Show. Certainly, this resource will allow you to teach reading and science at the same time.
