Writing About Animals is a bundle of animal writing packets. It includes the following packets:
Writing About Arctic Animals
Writing About Bugs
Writing About Desert Animals
Writing About Farm Animals
Writing About Forest Animals
Writing About Ocean Animals
Writing About Rainforest Animals
Writing About Zoo Animals
Each animal packet includes writing printables for different animals. Have your students gather information about the animals in each packet from reading an assortment of multi-leveled non-fiction animal books that meet the needs of your students.
Your students can choose one or more of the animals in each packet and write facts they learn about that animal(s). Each printable has a place for them to illustrate their writing. They also share what they have learned by reading the facts to two friends. The children who have been read to write their names on the lines. It’s a way for students to learn about the animals from each other.
You can place the printables at a thematic science or literacy center or use them during your writing block for guided or independent writing.
I also include half-page sized posters of each of the animals. Both colored and black and white versions are included. These can be laminated and placed on a pocket chart or word wall or put at a writing center for reference.
Each packet also includes animal word lists. The colored version of the word lists can be laminated and used for small group instruction or placed at a writing center. The black and white version can be used for individual student writing. The students can place them in a writing folder for reference.
