This literacy center is no prep to you and great fun for your students. They love learning facts about squirrels. This lesson gives them several different kinds of assignments to do that.
BUT WAIT! Before you buy anything, look in my store in the FREE section and find the literacy center lessons on turkeys and dogs absolutely free! You can download them and use them and see what a hit they are with your students before you buy.
HERE’S MORE GOOD NEWS: If you go to my store and look under “Bundles” you will find this lesson on squirrels bundled under November: Forest Critters. These lessons are also offered individually but you save money by buying the bundles. November’s Bundle contains this lesson plus one on raccoons, owls, turkeys, and deer.
This lesson contains:
• A learning sheet about squirrels
• A cut and paste worksheet on the learning sheet
• An ABC order worksheet
• An “Is, Have, Can” graphic organizer (You can have books about squirrels for the students to use or use the information on the learning sheet about squirrels.)
• Two writing worksheets using the information from the “Is, Have, Can” graphic organizer. One sheet is all writing and the other has space for a drawing on half the page and writing on half the page. You decide which your students should use.
• A word search
• A “Correct the Sentence” worksheet to rewrite the sentence using correct punctuation and capitalization
• A worksheet in which students choose which word contains a silent “e” and long “o” in it.
• There are pictures of the critter that the students enjoy coloring also.
A week’s worth of work for a literacy station. Have fun!
