Pets Part 1

Steps to Use Dog Poster Reports

Step One: Give each student a copy of the poster that best meets their individual learning needs. The first option provides primary lines and a word bank to help those students who need support with their printing. The second option provides regular lines and a word bank at the bottom of the page. Students choose the correct words to fill in the different sentences on the poster. The third option is for students who can compose their own sentences.

Step Two: Students using the option 1 and 2 posters, fill in the missing words in the sentences by choosing a word from the word bank. Students using the option 3 poster construct a sentence for each topic (pet, home, food, family, care, and behaviour).

Step Three: The students draw a picture in each box to illustrate the different sentences.

Step Four: Hang up the posters so students can check out their classmates’ posters.
