Zoo-Part 2

Okay, so first I have to say that I've been trying to post all weekend and "blogger" wouldn't let me for some reason.  I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter.  I'm so glad that my Savior is Alive and Lives Forevermore!  I went to a Newsong and 33 Miles concert in my hometown and I must admit that I am pumped!  There is nothing like worshipping with believers all around!  It was awesome.  With that said, On to Zoo...this was our last week of zoo "stuff" and it was so much fun.  Let it roll!


We hopped out syllables to words on kangroos.  Check out that hopping...














My kids did so well on this....go K's.

And, our tallying has gotten so good too!  Our math coach was impressed.












I think was my favorite page I added...this or the kangaroo.  Look how huge a gorilla's hand is!

Did you know that a kangaroo can jump 30 feet in one hop?  That's the length of our classroom.  We measure out 30 feet, then we hopped just to see how far we could hop in one hop.  We also measured out our own 30 foot piece of yarn to go with our fact page.










We made bunnies like on kinderbykim, but my friend Vickie had a great idea to use eggs...so I let the boys do carrots and the girls do eggs.












Our hippos from Deanna Jump's zoo unit, but we added a fact to the back.



I found these cute little trash cans at Target.  We didn't have a chance to do our activity, but we will this week...I have facts about each of these animals that we will sort.

  2. So many good ideas....!....the counting by fives activity will be on my lesson plans this week. Where can I find the printables?

    (PS: I've liked 33 Miles since they arrived on the scene! Happy Easter!)

  8. Would you mind sharing again? My kiddos are in full swing using some of your farm stations - and loving it! You are a very generous person!
    As a side note - I agree, it is so great to go to some of these concerts. I went with my girls to the Christian youth weekend at Silver Dollar City and we saw several great bands.(Abandon, Sanctus Real and more) I think I was equally as excited as they were about the music and the worship!

  11. I love "hopping" out words! Kinders think it is sooo fun! And I think holding children accountable for their work is so important. I would love a copy of these printables as well. We are pretty low on colored construction paper at our school. Does your school order enough or do you end up buying a lot of your own? I see you have some colors my school has never even had and I love it. Looks like I will have to buy more, more, more! Kindergarten is sooo much work because of all the "things" we have to make but it's so worth teaching them at this amazing age! Thanks for your constant motivation!

  24. Hi Julie.
    I am a new blog follower and have fell in love with your center activities. I like how most of them have similar expectations so students already know what they need to do. If you don't mind sharing, I would appreciate a copy of your zoo unit. I am planning on finishing up our school year with this thematic unit and would love to spice up my current unit. My class is going to love the kangaroo activity. Are the "pouches" that you used just brown lunch sacks cut in half?

    Thanks for everything.
