More with Nocturnal Animals

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share five activities from my week.  We have been learning about Nocturnal Animals.  I created 2 emergent readers that are nocturnal themed.

The first reader has children practice writing the word "is".


The second reader has children write the word "has" and also count and write how many acorns.


The kids are doing an awesome job learning sight words, however, they are struggling with Math skills.  On Friday, we created spiders and practiced putting numbers in order on their legs.


This is not a great picture, but the kids cut out shapes and glued them together to make a spider.  Then they wrote numbers in order on the spiders legs.  Ex: The spider may have 1, 3, 2, 0 and they would write 0, 1, 2, 3.  They solved 8 of these number order problems.  I let my students use stickers for eyes and a white crayon to draw the mouth and fangs.  They turned out really cute!

Each day we read non-fiction books about nocturnal animals, and then the kids wrote about them.  Here is a look at some of their writing.  Aren't they so great?!

 Owls eat flying squirrels.

 I like flying squirrels.  They jump off of a tree in the night.

I see an opposum.

I like opossums.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
