I love linking up with Amanda from The Primary Gal! She has so many fun ideas and gets so much done...I don't know how she does it! I love this secret admirer idea! Get ready to hear all about the blogger that I admire and enter a giveaway!
Next came the frog life cycle. This pack has everything you need to teach the life cycle - mini poster, fact sheet, and printables! There's also picture cards, life cycle books, and a life cycle craft.
After we read the fact sheet and reviewed the poster, I hung them on the board for students to reference. Then I set them off to recreate the life cycle on their own. Again, this page allows for easy differentiation! Students can cut apart the parts of the life cycle and the word labels to create the cycle OR they can keep them together to make it a little bit easier to create the cycle.
This student saw me taking pictures and decided to make hers extremely colorful! She worked really hard instead of going to her "social center" (our 20 minutes of "social/play time" at the end of the day). I just had to share hers!
Next up was a graphic organizer to sort all the information we had learned so far about frogs! The headings are a part of the pack plus it includes the words "tadpoles" too! (I didn't want to start a brand new pad of paper with only a few short days left so I used the back cardboard piece, ha!)
My students had to write at least 2 facts and then they could draw pictures to show the rest. They always seem to take me up on the drawing offer!
I love all the arrows on this one!
Did I mention how many amazing activities are in this one pack?! I even printed off a page to use for homework! This "Read and Answer" about the frog's life cycle was perfect to send home to help students work on comprehension. I printed the follow up questions on the back and sent it off in their folders. Many actually brought theirs back the next day...shocking!!
There's still more from Elyse's All About Frogs pack that we haven't even gotten to yet! I love this fact sheet. I have this one copied and ready to go at the end of our unit. I'll have my students complete this page along with filling in the "L" on the KWL page.
Another amazing poster from the pack!
