Chickens Aren’t the Only Ones by Ruth Heller

is one of my favorites!

We love this book so much, we decided to include it in our Engaging Readers .  

Oviparous Animals:  Schema

When we learn about animals that lay eggs, we start by examining our schema about oviparous animals.   This interactive writing activity not only helps us see what we already know about oviparous animals, but we also get to work a little on stretching out sounds.

As the students assist in completing this schema about animals that lay eggs, I am able to support students right where they are academically.

This is a perfect opportunity to reinforce what they already know about how words and phonics work.

Once students have completed the oviparous animal chart together, they then do some writing on their own.  Some will use the chart for support, others will respond independently.
