Reading comprehension and animals go hand in hand. Why? Interest in animals is high in primary so reading about them is fun! This differentiated set offers handwriting practice, reading comprehension passages and questions and labelling animal diagrams.

Sometimes while you teach a unit you just need a few more activities for students to complement a larger unit. Maybe it's a science center activity or a work on writing center activity that you need.

This set will fill that void. It can be used whole class, independently or as a center.

In this animal set, there are 4 animals included (one for each week).

January Animals:
Emperor Penguin

Polar Bear


Arctic Hare

Each set has 3 different types of printing sheets with sentences that tell about the animal.

  • Beginning readers and writers will practice their printing.

  • Early readers and writers will practice reading and writing a few simple sentences.

  • More advanced or older students will use NON-FICTION books about each animal to find vocabulary and facts. (This one can be adapted by the teacher by providing the vocabulary.)

Also included:

  1. 2 different printables that ask some reading comprehension questions about each animal using 2 different formats: True or False and Circle the Correct answer. Teachers can use whichever one best suits the learner.
  2. Each animal also has a diagram of body parts of the animal: one has the parts labelled, and one does not. Easily adaptable for different learners.

Please note: There are no real photos of the animals inside this pack to save printer ink. Clip art only.

Thanks for looking! Please use the Q & A if you have any questions.
