Posted by EALEE - 22 May. 2018 - Classroom Materials

This printable booklet will be useful for students who are beginning to write simple sentences. Writing answers to the simple questions in sentences will help with word order and sentence construction. Passages are written mainly in simple sentences, so many answers can be lifted straight from the passages. This will help students to achieve success, gain a sense of achievement and build confidence in writing their own sentences in English. This is most suited to students at the Emergent/Consolidating stage of acquiring English as a certain level of comprehension is required. If students are literate in their home language, use of a home language dictionary could be used to aid comprehension of any unknown vocabulary. This booklet is also suitable for use with native English speakers. 

The Wild Animals booklet has 10 pages containing information about the following animals:- 

elephants, lions, camels, giraffes, tigers, zebras, kangaroos, hippos, rhinos and pandas 

These pages can be used over and over again. After the information sheets, there are 10 worksheets. Each worksheet has 5 questions about one of the animals. Students could either write the answers on the worksheets or write the answers in a jotter/ notebook. 

If students are writing on the worksheets, a booklet could be produced using the worksheets and one of the two front covers available at the end of the booklet. 

Because, the passages contain factual information, they are suitable for use with a wide age range.
