I am using this in conjunction with our reading groups, where we are reading about different wild animals.
Each child will choose an animal from their book to fill out the matrix with four different facts.
This can be used for multiple levels. Students can use this with a read aloud and draw pictures for their facts. Older students can use it as an independent center for comprehension/reference. Hope you find it useful!
What I sell, I also use in my classroom, so all products are tried and tested by my own crew! :) We enjoy a very active classroom, and our activities reflect that. I hope you will find here what you need. If not, please send me a note and I'll be happy to create it for you! I am well versed in literacy centers, math centers, writing/grammar activities, reading plans, SMART Table applications, and more!
