This activity doesn’t require the Animal Antics Trumps cards although it works better with them. There are 30 animal Images with space to ask students to write about them and editable versions if you need.
On each Animal Antics card there is a both a picture and a description. These are designed for reading lessons if you have the pack of cards you can give to groups of students to help generate ideas, this can also be done with the other free resources on the dedicated page.
Why to use Animal Antics Writing cards
These are part of the series of downloadable ”hard resources” that we are offering to go with Animal Antics and it is an experiment to start with, so we have put together activities to go along side the Animal Antics trumps cards. These cards are designed to be much easier reading than traditional first language trump cards with less detail and less technical language. this makes them much more suited to lower primary, kindergarten and of course ESL classrooms. It also makes for a fun way to spend a car journey or for practicing reading at home as well.
We will be adding to the collection and if you do have a set of the cards then feel free to comment below on ideas on how to use them. We can add them to future updates when we discover the (no matter how hard we try) TYPOS that we all do!
The cards will be available to buy by mid September and we will put notice in the Facebook groups as well as on the website.
We are quite excited as the cards for both Animal Antics and for Flip Phonics look really quite good! I hope they are as useful as they are shiny!!!
Any way enough of that, we have more resources on the site feel free to check them out, and any questions drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do use these before mid September definitely come back to check out the trumps cards to see if they would help you .
Here is the download file for the PDF version of the game if you want the editable version to change questions etc it is will be put in the store when the cards are released. If you need it first drop me an email.
Most of resources can be premium downloaded below, they are all editable so you can adapt them for your, classes, students and schools. It also helps me with the costs of running the website!
