We also completed a tree map on each animal we studied this week. These are also from Deanna's Zoo Unit.
I think clipboards at the rug are some of my favorite teaching moments.
We practiced counting by 2's. For those that needed help they could count the colors on each sticker...that's what was so great about these stickers from ctp.
I used the blends and digraph teaching tubs for this center. I chose a few of the ch, th, and sh sounds and they had to draw an object out of the bag and write it on a spot.
A pocket chart story by me.
Got this game from Jamie M. She's my "partner in crime."
This is just a rhyming puzzle I made. They had to draw a matching color piece out of the bag "without looking" and then match it to it's rhyme.
We made the following grassland animals from Deanna's unit as well. We added a fact to the back of each one. I changed a few of the sizes to die-cuts to make it easier on me!!
We added an 18 inch tongue to our giraffes with a fact on the back.
They look adorable hanging from the ceiling!
OOPS! This picture is sideways. It's our fact on the back of our elephant. We did this during small groups and sounded out the words. This was done the kid-writing way.
It says: "An elephant's trunk is 6 feet long."
We added a 6 foot long strip for the elephant's trunk. The kids had to measure out their own trunk to be 6 feet. Then they colored their trunk gray and glued it on. I got the trunk idea from Suzan and the elephant idea from Deanna.
The little girl that made this said, "Look, my lion is running!"
This monkey idea came from Kim Jordano.
We marble painted a tiger in art center and added a fact for our zoo fact book.
This is our zebra fact book page. Idea from Suzan.
