I know we do this already in many ways mostly without really realizing it but next year my district is doing away with the science/social studies/and health block and adapting full on integration of these subjects during out reading and possibly math block. We are also to be integrating informational text at least 2 stories each week which I know will make it easier, but I am a bit concerned. I like the separate time to explore with the kids, we have went off on tangents and while staying within the curriculum standards studied all kinds of stuff. Anyone else required to do full integration??
