1-2-3 Come Do Some Chick Hatching Activities With Me

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsDo you study chickens or hatch chicks as a life cycle science unit?
Our preschool does; they get their fertilized eggs from a local farmer.

With that in mind, I designed this jumbo chicken packet, which is chock full of a variety of activities that you can easily diversify, as you practice all sorts of math, science & language arts standards.

The packet includes:

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick crafts* A collection of posters:

These can be used as anchor charts, decorations, countdowns, reminders & bulletin board displays. Several are also included in black and white so that you can use them as worksheets for your students.
 chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick crafts* crafts:

Such as the "When Will I Hatch?" slider craftivity, which helps practice counting backwards from 21-0, as well as counting forward from 0-21.  

Children can show you an AB-AB color pattern, as they trace the numbers with 2 different colored highlighters.

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsThere are also several Life Cycle of a Chicken craftivities as well. 

Children can make a "flip the flap" chick life cycle, or show the various stages of the 21 days of an embryo inside an egg.

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsThere's an incubator, as well as an egg option.  All patterns come in color as well as black and white.

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick crafts* puzzles:

So that you can easily diversify lessons, there are a variety of puzzle options available.

There are the simple 3-piece sequencing puzzles, as well as the 6-piece "Chicks on a Roll" puzzle dice game.

My 4-year-old grandson absolutely loves playing these puzzle dice games, as do my Y5 & kinders. 

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsThe 3-piece egg-shaped puzzles are a bit more complex, as students put together the number, number word and group/set of that many together. 

To make this independent center activity self-correcting, number the pieces accordingly on the back. 

The number "strip puzzles" practice numbers 12-21, which are great for those toughie teen numbers, as well as help to reinforce the 21-day "chick hatching" concept.

The large, 11-piece egg-shaped puzzle does the same thing.  All puzzles come in full color so you can use them for a center, as well as black & white, so that kiddos can color, cut and make thier own to take home.

If you also get your eggs from a nearby farm, then you'll enjoy the "Thank You; I Learned A Lot!"  writing prompt card.

Use the colorful one for all your little ones to sign, or the black & white option, for older students to complete on their own, then drop the card(s) off when you give the chicks back.  The packet also includes plenty of ...

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsStudents can also color an egg on their "countdown worksheet".

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, egg experiments, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsBecause many children have not seen a rooster, chicken or chick before, I've included 33 real photographs.

Studying chicks wouldn't be complete without an "eggs-citing" scientific look into what's happening, so I designed 3 booklets.

You can do these as a whole group with little ones, using the colorful template options, or have older students color their own booklet; or mix & match doing several together & one or 2 independently. 

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, egg experiments, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsI don't take anything for granted when teaching my Y5s, as many of them have very limited experiences. 

With that in mind I designed the "Eggs-amining" An Egg activities and booklet to record their findings. They especially enjoy cracking an egg on their own, seeing if an egg will sink or float, & having a "spin contest".

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, egg experiments, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsThey do this with both a raw and hard boiled egg then compare their findings.

Students can work individually, with a partner or in a small group. You can also do this as a whole group activity with little ones.

Another one of the booklets is "Chick This Out" an observation egg-shaped booklet where the teacher or students can record what's going on with the eggs/chicks each day.  

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, egg experiments, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsThe 3rd booklet is a "Peek Inside" flip booklet where students record what's going on inside the egg.

These can simply be a few pages for little ones, or more in-depth observation and analysis through "candling" or learning about what's taking place via the photographs, "fast facts" information or educational links that I've included. 

chicken life cycle activities, chicken crafts, chick hatching activities, egg experiments, chick hatching photographs, chicken games, chick games, life cycle of a chicken posters, life cycle of a chick games, life cycle of a chick craftsFinally, as a culminating activity, I designed some "visitor" activities.

Since we have all sorts of people parading through the preschool to take a look at the chicks when they hatch (the principal, staff, & lots of other classrooms), I thought it would be fun to create a guestbook.

I've included a page for visiting classrooms to fill out then sign prior to their arrival, which includes a place for questions they may have.

There's also an invitation to hang up in the teacher's lounge, as well as an individual note, which can be placed in their mailbox. Welcoming posters, and a sign to hang on your doorknob, are all included as well. 

Well that's a quick review of what's in this whopping 342-page Chick packet, which is currently on sale for 50% off. 

As always, I give away 2 jumbo packets each month, along with a $10 TpT gift card, so be sure and check out my Face Book page, and enter to win my monthly "Flash Fun" Giveaways.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 2D Spring Shape Activities With Me   

Years ago I drew my first "shapely" animals; and since the penguins were so popular, I continued to design different animals for the various seasons.

lion & lambs activities, frog activities, bunny activities, chick activities, spring bulletin boards, 2D shape games, 2D shape centers, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape activities, Today I'm featuring my newest creation, "Shape Up!" with  "Lions & Lambs" packet, along with 3 other popular springtime "shapely critters": chicksbunnies & frogs.

sheep shapesWhether you're teaching 2D shapes for the first time, or simply looking for a review, these cuties will add some zing to your spring, lion & lamb-themed lessons.

shapely lion sample picturesThere are 3 crafty options.

Younger students can simply color the lion & lamb-faced worksheet of their choice with no cutting, or draw in their own head on the blank shape, while older kiddos can cut and glue a lion or lamb head to their favorite shape.

lion & lambs activities, frog activities, bunny activities, chick activities, spring bulletin boards, 2D shape games, 2D shape centers, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape activities, There’s a simple “straight-edge” shape pattern for little ones that’s easy to cut, along with a more challenging shape pattern where students cut the lion’s mane and the sheep’s body out for a more realistic look.

lion & lambs activities, frog activities, bunny activities, chick activities, spring bulletin boards, 2D shape games, 2D shape centers, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape activities, Children can glue the lion head to the “shapely” mane, or the lamb head to the “shapely” body of the sheep.

The packet also includes posters & games with colorful cards to use as a center activity.

The "Slick Chick" packet follows a similar format, but also includes 3D shapes, and an emergent reader booket.

Students read, trace and write the shape word, fill in the shapes to look like chicks; trace the shape and then draw that shape.

They also underline the capital letter and add end punctuation

lion & lambs activities, frog activities, bunny activities, chick activities, spring bulletin boards, 2D shape games, 2D shape centers, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape activities, The bunny rabbit is certainly a symbol of spring as well.  I had a lot of fun designing a cute little face for this "shapely" animal friend.

The 2D shapes are easily recognizable, as they are simply topped off with a pair of bunny ears.

To make them especially cute, I've included a pattern for a ladybug & 3D butterfly to add some extra pizzazz.

The format is also similar, but also includes a short “giggle” tale about Ferdinand the frog and Princess Penelope, who was turned into a fly!

Read it as an interesting way to introduce the shape craft, then have older students "flip up the mouth" and write their own "fractured fairy tale" on the frog's "tongue".

There’s a set of discussion questions for the story, as well as a comprehension worksheet.

lion & lambs activities, frog activities, bunny activities, chick activities, spring bulletin boards, 2D shape games, 2D shape centers, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape activities, Today's featured FREEBIE is a whopping 41-page, whimsical"Shapely Mouths" packet, which will help you review, as well as assess 2D shapes and shape words.  I hope you find it useful.

Wishing you a cozy & cuddly kind of day, filled with all the things you enjoy the most.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Chick and Bunny Craftivities With Me

I love springtime. There's something magical and invigorating about it; and there are so many themes you can incorporate into your lessons.

The chick and bunny seem to be popular symbols, so with that in mind I used them to design some quick, easy and super-fun craftivities, which practice a variety of standards. 

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesI'll be featuring 4 of my favorites, along with today's FREEBIE.  First up is a chick-themed -ick word family packet.    

The packet includes:

* An -ick chick word slider craftivity, featuring 20 words, with 2 size options.

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activities* An -ick family poster with 22 words, plus  10 “flip the flap” -ick word booklets, as well as an “ABC Me” worksheet.  I've also included ...

* A cover to make an -ick word family dictionary, along with an Itty Bitty -ick word family booklet, plus a "Fill in the blanks” missing -ick word, sentence worksheet along with ...

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activities* A set of -ick word family picture cards, with matching -ick word cards, so you can play “Memory Match” and “I Have; Who Has?” games, individually, with a partner or as a whole group activity.

* To mix math with literacy, there's an “Isn’t it slick that I can skip count with my chick?” slider craft, with 2 size options.
These number sliders skip count by 2s, 3s, 5s, or 10s

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesYou can also practice the -op word family with my bunny packet.

The format is similar. The -op word family poster has an alphabetical list of 49 words, with some new words even to me, llke kop and trop, so I've also included a cover to make an —op word family dictionary.

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesI chose 18, or those -op words and made "just the right size", mini-cards.  Students can put them in alphabetical order, as an independent center, or partner up to see who can do it the fastest.  

Another idea, is to have children choose 2-3 cards and use the words in a sentence. 

The bunny and chick were also perfect to design some more "shapely critter crafts" which all started years ago with the penguin packet.

It's a wonderful, hands-on way to review 2D and 3D shapes.

Both animals are super-cute, but my personal favorite is the bunny.

There are 3 pattern options for the rabbit: A whimsical looking one, a "fluffy" faced one, as well as blank templates so children can draw their own.  

I've also included a paw pattern to make the shapes look even more like a bunny.

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesI think part of the bunny's charm, is that I also added a set of butterflies and ladybugs, which feature the various shapes. 

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesFor a bit of 3D pizzazz, students choose one and glue the bug to the top of one of the bunny's ears.

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesBesides the standard 2D shapes, due to many requests, I've also included the trapezoid and rhombus "pattern block" shapes, along with the hexagon, pentagon and octagon

Since many teachers are also teaching 3D shapes, there's also patterns for the cone, cube, cylinder and sphere.

Click on the links for the "Slick Chick Spring Shape Up" packet, and the "Hop To It" Bunny Shape packet.

ick word family activities, op word family activities, easter crafts, chick crafts, bunny crafts, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 3D shape activiteis, 3D shape crafts, hexagon activitiesFinally, while diddling around with pattern blocks, I discovered that you can use other pieces, to make a hexagon

Since this is a really new shape for my Y5s, it tends to be a "toughie" for them to remember. 

I think part of the difficulty, is because there are not many "real life" examples for them to see.  With that in mind, I designed the "Don't be vexed by the "hex", hexagon challenge.

I putzed 'til I created a dozen arrangements, and have included a full-color, as well as a black & white template (filled in with lines, plus blank) for them to place pattern pieces on.

Later, after they've created some patterns, turn it into a "Speed" game; set a timer and see who can make the most hexagons before it rings.

Your students will enjoy hopping to the next number, as they skip count with the bunny, by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's.  I've also included "What's Missing?" worksheets for each skip counted set.  These are great for "early finishers" or homework to send over spring break.
