- the difference between living and non living things
- kingdoms of living things
- vertibrates and invertabrates and how to tell the difference.
- we have also subdivided the animal kingdom into mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish
We played with puzzles to learn all about the different animals
We played folder games. The top folder games I made from Primary Partners and the bottom one came from File Folder Fun.
These were the selections pulled for silent/independent reading.
We sang Kindermusic songs about the creatures in our backyard
We played with animals and their habitats
We sorted mini animals into their different groups
We did our math using a barrel of monkeys(besides who says you have to count beans!)
We played fish games. (These came from Nana!)
We read the book Froggy gets Dressed. (The boys love these books, they are simple and sweet and fun)
We used the materials from Kizclub to add to our reading experience.
These activities were so fun and my kids really enjoyed them. It was also a nice way to step away from worksheets for the day.
