We have read a lot of non fiction books about nocturnal animals. This prepared the students to be able to sort animals by whether they were nocturnal or not.
Each morning we review the alphabet together through songs. After reviewing as a whole group I give them independent work. This ending sound practice was a cut and paste activity in which the children had to listen to the last sound and then paste the correct letter under the picture.
This week we added "yes" and "no" to the list of words that we know. The kids answered the question, "Are these animals nocturnal?" by writing "yes" or "no".
The "Foxy Counting" is an activity that I put in station work. I copied the fox onto construction paper and then added different amounts of stickers to each fox. The students had to count the stickers and then write the number in the circle and color the fox to match.
""Owl" Read It" was another station activity. The students practiced reading and writing sight words and coloring the owls to match.
For the beginning sounds activity, the students had to write the correct beginning letter.
"Skunky Addition" was tricky for most of the kids. It comes with cut and paste addition sentences that the students must glue under the correct skunk.
"Counting with the Fox" was also tricky. The students counted and then cut and paste the correct number under the fox. Although it was a little difficult for them, it was great practice.
For the syllable count, the kids just colored the number of moons to match how many syllables they heard.
And for this activity, students simply sorted the words as to whether there were 2 or 3 letters in the word.
All of these activities and MORE can be found in my Nocturnal Animals Pack.
