Animal Antics – Reading Comprehension Worksheets (30)

These thirty cards can be used independently or with the forthcoming Animal Antics trump cards that have been designed for students of English.

There are 30 different animal worksheets all representing the text found on the Animal Antics Trump cards but with varying levels of difficultly. The questions, although mostly following the text also ask students to use higher order thinking skills to answer open ended questions.

Who are they for?

These are the first ”hard resources” that we are offering 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.

These worksheets, however, can be used alone, like others on the site, but are a perfect accompaniment for lessons involving the cards 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 info@makingenglishfun.com.

What are they for?

They can be used as part of general lessons or as part of a Guided reading programme ( which is what i am going to try to build up here) A set of reading cards for schools to be able to target reading levels for their students and implement a cost saving reading system to help them better cater for learner diversity. There are multiple sets of these on the site some are multi – topic and graded, (like this one) others are set on a particular subject. They are constantly, work allowing, added to so it maybe worth booking marking the site.

The phonics resources on this site also go well with this and they are also available in both free and editable versions

These are also editable if you need but there is a small fee from the shop. there are also other graded readers and phonics resources both here and in the store.

IF you do use these before mid Septmeber 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!

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.
