Students make their own spinner with just a pencil and paperclip and they are ready to play! They will spin the spinner and use the recording sheet to show “counting on” from the number the spinner landed on.
Rainforest Animal Writing Center
This Rainforest Animal Writing Center comes in two versions and can be used as an independent literacy center or as an interactive Write the Room/Color the Room.
Hang the rainforest animal cards around the room and kids can write the matching animal name OR color the matching animal picture on the recording sheet as they find them. Make this activity reusable by slipping the recording sheets into a dry erase pocket sleeves!
Match and Trace Animal Shape Puzzles
Work on 2D shape recognition and tracing shapes with these Match and Trace Animal Shape Puzzles. They’re a super fun and easy way to introduce shapes!
First, students match the animal puzzles and then they trace each shape on the recording sheet.
Leafy Lunch Sight Words
This Leafy Lunch Sight Words activity is EDITABLE which means you can customize it to work on the words of your choice!
Students will pick a sight word animal card and use the leaf letter cards to build the words on the mat. We even included an optional recording sheet for writing the sight words!
Ten Toucans Math Mats
The Ten Toucans math mats provide a hands-on way to work on counting skills and making 10!
To play, students choose some orange beak and some yellow beak toucan picture cards
to fill the ten frame on the mat. Then they write the different ways to make ten on the recording sheet.
Butterfly Letter Match
The Butterfly Letter Match activity is so versatile because you get to decide which pieces to use. Choose between uppercase/uppercase, lowercase/lowercase, or uppercase/lowercase options.
Once you pick the pieces, print the corresponding recording sheet and students can make a match and write or trace the letters that they matched.
