Farm animal reports

Each spring we complete a farm animal research report in kindergarten. This year we split up my class (my co-teacher and myself) to work on this report. I took the students who struggle a little more with writing. To begin we learned about each farm animal by itself and created a can/have/are anchor chart for each animal. Here are some pictures of those:

After our anchor charts were created I had each student write one sentence about that animal on a sentence strip and then we made a group like report together on the bigger replica animals that my lovely practicing student drew for me. Here are those:

Once we learned about all the farm animals each student chose one animal that they wanted to go more in depth about. The students wrote at least 3 sentences using the anchor chart for their animal on their research paper. After they had published their writing we made paper plate animals to represent our animals. My co-teacher also had her group create the paper plate animals but they went about the research process a little more independently. I created a little verse of Old McDonald and drew a barn to add to the hall. I think it turned out super cute!
