Is it a turtle or a tortoise? The kiddos will have fun comparing and contrasting these reptiles in two informational closes.
We have included WOW! words and Questions (text dependent and BIG thinking).
Each close has a variety of writing formats:
*Can, Have, Are
*A Picture and Two Facts
*A factual take-home book for each animal
For extensions we have provided:
*There Was A Little Turtle, poem
*Is This My Burrow? book
-UR controlled vowels, like turtle
-OR controlled vowels, like tortoise
-Sight word game
* Math activities:
-5 frames/10 frames
-Turtle Tic Tac Toe game (with equations)
-Tortoise Toes game
Thank you very much!
