When you talk with your class about animals, aren't you sometimes amazed by how many facts your students know? And aren't you also sometimes amazed by how firmly a little guy can hold onto something that he really believes is true, but actually isn't?
"Yep, rabbits lay eggs. I know they do. My grandpa told me that the Easter Bunny laid his eggs in my backyard." From the mouth of one of my first graders. Really happened.
Here's a way to straighten out a few facts while also getting in some early reading practice. It's a set of subject/predicate cards that your students will assemble into 12 non-fiction sentences (no egg-laying bunnies here!). The set also includes a self-check card and a student response page. Click on the cover to download yours!
