Woodland Animals: Writing Prompt Craftivities is a combo package and a fun way to add a craft to a writing prompt. There is a craftivity for each of the following eight animals in this package: bear, squirrel, moose, fox, deer, raccoon, skunk, and bluebird.
You have lots of options. For each animal, there is a cover page that includes the animal's name followed by three different writing prompts. These are prompts that you can print "as is" and the student will color the animal and write on the topic.
The first topic asks the student to imagine being the animal, the second topic asks the student to imagine having one of the animal's traits, and the last topic lists the letter of the alphabet that corresponds with the animal (B is for Bluebird, R is for Raccoon, D is for Deer, F is for Fox, M is for Moose, S if for Squirrel, and B is for Bear). Use this prompt for students to list additional words that begin with the same letter, assign your own topic, or let students come up with their own topic.
Next, you will find the same three topic s formatted for a page topper. If you choose these prompts, add the animal image and the leaves after those prompts. You can either print these animal page toppers on colored paper or ask your students to color them.
The last two items for each animal are graphic organizers to help with the writing process. Each animal has a clustering/web word organizer and a KWL (Know, Want to Know, Learned) chart.
Learning should be fun. I'm Robin Sellers of Sweet Tea Classroom and my shop is full of products that integrate fun across the curriculum. Be sure to check out my many glyphs and writing prompt craftivites. The kiddos love them! I have been a teacher for over 15 years, and I have taught many different grades and classes. I believe that learning should be fun. One of my favorite parts of teaching is being able to create meaningful classroom materials and resources for students. I also share my ideas and techniques with other teachers in my online continuing education courses for teachers.
