Summer of Animals

This summer we will be focusing on all things animal. Little Bit and I will be taking three different classes at the zoo that is just for preschoolers. I am excited to go to class with Little Bit, she loves animals and watching her in class should be fun.

The first class is all about how animals grow from baby to adult. The second class is all about Florida animals and the third class is about being a zoo keeper. The first class starts this week and the last class ends in August.

To prepare for talking about animals I pulled together a few things to get started:
  • Animal pictures: I printed LOTS and LOTS of animal pictures. The pictures all go along with one or all of the class themes.
  • Small animal figures: we can use these in many different ways.
  • Animal Books: it is amazing how many animals books we had around the house.
  • More will be added to this list as the summer goes on.
There are so many things that you can do with animals. Below is a list of activities we will do, this is not a complete list by any means. If you have any favorite animal activities please let me know.

Animal Activities:
  • Sorting picture by air, land and water animals
  • Match picture of mom and baby animals
  • Math animal figures to animal picture
  • Animal shape cookies to decorate
  • Foam animals - decorate, play, sort, etc
  • Animal print match up
  • Patterns with animal figures
  • Visit the zoo, petting farm, state park, etc
  • Books, books and more books
This is a list of some of my favorite ideas from fellow bloggers.
