An integrated curriculum connects different areas of study by emphasizing related concepts across subject matters.

Differentiated instruction can be used to meet the needs of all learners. It is when a lesson, chapter or unit is taught in different ways. Teachers construct their lesson plans using a variety of learning methods in order to meet the needs of all students.

Recently a friend told me about the book, The Wild Robot. She told me her kids loved it - and they are not big fans of fiction books. This sweet story is a bit unconventional and has a lot of great themes that can be discussed. The book is listed for grades 3-7, but I would recommend it for grades 3-5 in school.

Read the Wild Robot with your students in grades 3-5. This is a wonderful mentor text for teaching theme. In addition, teachers can easily integrate science and language arts with this sweet book.
