Tiger writing lesson and assessment

We started by my reading of two non-fiction books on tigers, and then we used 5 copies of a shorter book to group read. After three days of reading, writing, and learning about the biology of the big cats I gave them an assessment on their reading of new vocabulary, writing, and remembering science facts from our readings and discussions.

Tiger Lesson

Tiger assessment

This lesson is a handwriting  (writing) lesson that involves reading (reading) non-fiction books about certain animals and subjects (science), and includes cutting and pasting (fine motor skills). The drawing after writing really works with my students who are very eager to draw, and the drawings reinforce what they have learned that day.
