Pond Packet Freebie


Our class discovers information about pond animals through discovery bags. This packet contains an emergent level fact sheet and word bank about six different pond animals along with a fact sheet for students to collect their information. I include a stuffed animal or puppet in each bag, word bank and fact sheet along with nonfiction books I have collected (Check your library for books to put in your discovery bags if you don't have a large collection.) The students fill out their animal fact sheet. They  use the collected information to write about the animal of their choice. I also made a short video about each pond animal.  My website Linda's Learning Links has a pond webpage geared to emergent readers. To receive the packet, just follow my blog and leave a comment along with your email address. If you are a follower, please leave a comment and your email address and I'll get the packet to you. I will upload the videos later this week.

Thank you for all the hard work you do and for sharing it with the rest of us. I would love to have a pond packet. One of my students found a frog on the playground yesterday and we have been observing him. Perfect timing!!!
