Reptile Kindergarten Unit

I’m going to start keeping track of what I’m doing for my kid’s school by posting it up here.  This way all my links are in one place for me, and hopefully someone else can benefit from my work 🙂  I will primarily be posting what I am doing for my youngest two.  The first one I am going to put up is my reptile unit:

Materials: printer paper and ink, cookie cutters, dish sponges, tempura paint, pipe cleaners, ruler, paper, crayons or markers, paper plate, string, paper bowl, foil, cardstock or cardboard, glue, dishwashing soap, food coloring, paintbrushes, googly eyes

Everyday we will be using this Kindergarten Kit.

We will also be watching Magic School Bus season 2 episode 12, Cold Feet on Netflix streaming.

Day 6:

Please note that more than likely some of these will be spread out over two days instead of one.  We are focusing primarily on phonics right now so when we hit a letter we don’t know very well I will split the activities up over two days, read the same book both days, and have the kids practice the letter that I have assigned both days.  I will be making flashcards each time I introduce a letter and we will go over the flashcards each day before we begin the other activities.
