Animal Reports.Oral Language Skills. Every child researched an animal of their choice, with Mrs McCabe. They found information in books, on animal cards and online. They found pictures and fabulous photos on line. Some of the facts they discovered were amazing. Did you know a tiger can stay standing up when it is dead? These were presented in two ways. One was text and picture reports that were put on the walls of our room and the corridors of the senior school. The other way was through the medium of film. A lot of scaffolding with reading, listening and speaking was done before anything could be presented. These were done in Terms 2 and 3.
