Instructional Ideas

  • Have class members note the sensory language and details they find
  • Add to a homework packet for extended practice
Classroom Considerations

  • Story seems to be missing an ending; have learners come up with their own
  • Calls the baby chicks chickens and children, but not chicks, which may confuse some pupils
  • Designed for second graders, but vocabulary and sentence structure may be better suited for older readers
Pros

  • Provides ample space for complete sentences and longer responses
  • Two-page format makes a good double-sided worksheet
Cons

  • Does not include an answer key
