The packet includes writing printables and posters for eleven different bugs: ant, bee, butterfly, caterpillar, dragonfly, fly, grasshopper, ladybug, mosquito, potato bug, and worm. I also include one printable for students to choose a bug that is not included in the packet.
Have your students read and listen to books about bugs.
Students complete “is, can, has” frame sentences about each bug. Each printable has a place for students to illustrate their writing. Students can write about every bug, or they can choose which bugs they want to write about.
You can place the printables at a thematic writing/science center or use them during your writing block for guided or independent writing.
I also include half-page sized posters of each of the bugs. Both colored and black and white versions are included. These can be laminated and placed on a pocket chart or word wall or placed at a writing center for reference.
“Is, can, has” word cards are included for whole or small group brainstorming and discussions. The students can share their ideas for completing the frame sentences.
Another idea is to have students write about their favorite bug. The writings can be compiled into a class book and placed in your reading center for the students to read. A class book cover in both color and black and white is included in the packet.
