Tell About Xantus


Share this printable

In this activity, kids practice writing a narrative text. They describe a toucan by answering the questions. Students tell how the xantus looks, where does it live, and what does it eat. Students learn to form written sentences that others can understand. They continue to work on proper letter formation and spacing. The writing is based on previously reading the passage about the xantus. Students read their writing to the classmates and ask them to guess what animal it is.
