To help reinforce colors and color words, play this "spin to win" cool cat color game. Students choose a partner and take turns spinning. Whatever color they land on, they color that sneaker, and then trace and write the matching color word in that color. The first one to complete their bookmark with all of the colors is the winner.
This packet is a fun way to reinforce colors and color words. Use the cards for Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games. Students match the color word card to the matching color shoe card.
If you read the adorable book The Kissing Hand, by Aurdrey Penn, you're familiar with Chester an anxious little raccoon. Since he is such an endearing character for children, I thought I'd incorporate him into some fun hand's-on shape games and activities.

This is a wonderful extension after reading The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. The packet includes large 8x10 number cards from 0-10, with a blank one to program with higher numbers.

There are also trace and write worksheets for numbers 0-100.

This emergent reader is a wonderful booklet to do before or after your zoo field trip, as most of the letters are associated with an animal. When students get back read the booklet and discuss which animals the children saw. This FREEBIE is part of my large "Wild About The Alphabet Packet". For your convenience, I've included a preview.
If you don't have a zoo near you, or there's no budget or time for your kiddos to visit a real zoo, why not take them on a virtual fieldtrip? I researched zoo websites to find the best virtual experience for your students and listed 8 of my favorites. All of them are kid-friendly, many have live animal cams, videos, and games. All of them contain a plethora of pictures and information suitable for animal reports.
