Science Infused Literacy Instruction With BYU

Our second grade classes are participating in an 8-week research project that examines how integrated science and literacy instruction influences second grade reading and writing ability and science content knowledge.  This project is known as SILI – Science Infused Literacy Instruction and is funded by a grant from Brigham Young University for this project.  Teachers are effectively integrating science and literacy instruction that aligns with the Utah Core Standards.

Students compared and contrasted living and non-living with Gummy Worms and Earth Worms. They also went outside to research living and non-living things on our playground. Currently they are focusing on the life cycle of plants with Basil and planting bean seeds and documenting the growth of the beans.
