Bunny Hop Can Game

 Have your students laughing and learning with this fun bunny hop can game.  This 22 page booklet gives you 3 games in one.

Children identify the cards and place them on their card mats.  If a child gets a bunny hop card then the whole groups gets to do the bunny hop.

What I have planned for Down on the Farm Week 1

I have had several emails asking me what my daily and weekly lesson plans look like.  So I thought I would take this opportunity to post what my week might look like.

I see number pocket chart with farm animals
The children just love these kinds of activities.  First children come up and find the numbers for each line, once all the numbers have been placed children take turns reading each line of the pocket chart.

Paper bowl Hens and Chicks

This project is done during workstation time or free choice time.  Children move in and out of this activity as they wish.  I usually have the art project up for two days this gives children plenty of time to want to come and make one or two.

Shard Writing (What we know about farms)

The shared writing is done as a whole group during our ABC group meeting.
