A Day on the Prairie by Third Grade Students of Kildeer Countryside Elementary School

A book written and illustrated by a group of third-grade students. Dedicated to the thesaurus, the students inform us of the plants, flowers, insects, birds, and other animals that live on the prairie in a poetic tone.

Word Choice
Perfect to use for a lesson on word choice! The authors hand-picked words to accurately and poetically describe life on the prairie. A wonderful model to use to show students how word choice enhances the description of a topic and how they can be authors, too. Lesson Idea: Read aloud this text to students and have them pick out the descriptive words or phrases that they like. Create a list of adjectives to use as a resource in the classroom. Encourage students to use different descriptive words when they are writing.
