Animal Information Report Scaffolds


Categories: ,


Are your students writing animal information reports? These scaffolded writing sheets will help your students to write all about their chosen animal. These scaffolds take students back to basics in their information writing, guiding them with labels, a word bank, and sentence stems. This scaffolding is perfect for early learners.
If you’re linking your information reports to living things, animals are the perfect topic as children are just so interested in them, and already have some background knowledge.
There are 25 animals included – each animal writing scaffold includes a picture of the animal and space to label the animal’s characteristics. Then, students are given sentence starters to write sentences. Your students will love choosing an animal, labeling its physical characteristics, and then writing interesting sentences. 
This resource includes:
  • 25 animal writing scaffolds
  • Each scaffold includes title, student name and date, picture of animal, spaces to label animal, sentence stems (ARE, HAVE, CAN, LIVE, EAT), writing lines for students to complete the sentences.
  • You can guide students to classify their animals (ARE), describe them (HAVE), share interesting facts and life cycle information (CAN) detail their habitat (LIVE) and their diet (EAT). These sentence stems can later become headings.
