Product Description

20 riddles for students to read, think, write and draw. Students love these as it requires them to read and think! Each riddle is based on a February theme including groundhog's day, valentine's day, postage stamps, letters and writing, President's day and some animal facts. And did you know it is "Feed the Birds Month"... a riddle about John James Audubon and also some riddles about birds.

Students read the riddle, think of the answer; then write a sentence to answer the question. Then, the student illustrates his/her sentence. These can be used as morning seat work, homework, fast finishers, literacy center or practice in literacy skills. An answer key is included and labels for a bin if you wish to place them in your room for extra work.
