Are your students into learning about animals? Mine definitely are! I created these acrostic poems as an addition to my writing center. You can put out a few of the animals or concentrate on one a week, if you choose. I plan on setting out informational texts to go along with the animal and students can do some research on their own.
Animals included are: crab, dolphin, duck, fish, frog, octopus, seahorse, shark, turtle, whale, deer, fox, gopher, owl, rabbit, raccoon, skunk, snail, cow, goose, horse, mouse, pig, rooster, sheep, elephant, flamingo, giraffe, hippo, kangaroo, lion, monkey, penguin, sloth, snake and rhino.
