Do you know the differences between Frogs and Toads? Did you know that Toads walk because of their short hind legs? I learned a lot about Frogs and Toads when I was researching my unit on Frogs and Toads. Many of your students read the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel so why not add a non-fiction unit and compare fictional frogs and toads to real ones. Here is a great picture book to teach the life cycle of a frog.I found quite a long list of Non-fiction books at Amazon which you can access by clicking on the picture below.
One of my first products that I created was called "Leaping with Frogs and Toads". 2012 was a leap year so the original product had a reading text about Leap Year. I have learned so much about creating materials and revised it leaving out the Leap Year materials and then I just revised it again in April of 2014. I have added 15 new pages to the 2nd edition. Believe it or not I have just made a 2015 revision. You can now download the Preview to see sample pages of all the differentiated reading texts and writing activities as well as other activities in this packet. Just click on the image below to check it out.
I have put together a free packet called Compare and Contrast Real and Fictional Frogs and Toads. It has 2 Compare and Contrast Venn diagrams and Writing Paper. Comparing and Contrasting 2 Books is also an ELA CCSS.
You can download this freebie by clicking on the image below.
