FARM ANIMALS Riddles- POEMS FREEBIE-Great for Language activities...PreK, Kindergarten, 1st, Homeschool Lesson Plans (Individual), Thematic Unit Plans, Activities...This freebie includes a set of 7 riddles-poems which I wrote when I was teaching my MEGA FARM ANIMAL THEME PACK. These poems are my original work and I used them with very younger Kindergarten students as a part of an oral comprehension-listening activity.
Read "When it starts to snow" or "Time to Sleep" and then discuss how various animals get ready for winter. Some animals migrate to warmer climates, some animals find a warm home and then hibernate and sleep all winter, others are active or awake all winter long and try hard to gather food. Then have your child sort and glue the animals in their winter habitats.
NOT. As an upper grade teacher speaking, the kids never understand the concept of greater than and less than when they arrive in my class. Moreover, they forget whether the alligator is going one way or another. Seems like it would make more sense to teach the vocabulary to the symbol without an animal.
