Animal Letters, Informational Text and Research Featuring Animalia By Graeme Base

$10.00

This animal themed activity pack features the picture book Animalia by Graeme Base.

Providing animal focused language arts activities for PreK- Grade 2, this activity pack starts with a dramatic play invitation to be animals.  We start our language arts activities by illustrating an animal and finding adjectives that start with the same letter sound, mirroring the text. Then, we get some wiggles out by doing a “letter leap” practicing both letter recognition and, when we’re ready to advance, beginning sound recognition.  Also included is a letter/animal matching game. Finally, for older kids, we finish up with three writing activities inspired by the book; an opinion piece, an animal tracking journal, and a presentation of facts about the animal we followed. Included are a large list of web cams for students to use in their research, don’t spend hours searching for good cams, I’ve already done it for you!
