This book is good for a literature science lesson plan. It could also be used for onset and rime lessons in language arts classroooms. For science content, it has valuable information about weather, time, and seasons that could be a part of a lesson plan to satisfy Georga Performance Standards S1E1, S2E2, and S4E2.

This would be a good book for a literature or science lesson plan. It could be used for onset and rime for first-second graders. For science, it could be used to teach about weather, time, and seasons for kindergarten through fifth grade.

Awesome book that goes through all of the seasons and different characteristics. It has great rhymes that are very cute. Here Comes the Year focuses on weather, different seasons, and time, which all fall under first, second, and forth grade standards.
