Z is for Zoo

10/01/2009
~Malachi is 4 years 7 months~
Bible:
(Sing the From Word A-Z)
"Zion hears and is glad . . . " Psalm 97:8-9 

Books:
If I Ran the Zoo by Dr. Seuss
Put Me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire
Z is For Zookeeper, A Zoo Alphabet, by Marie and Roland Smith (A neat book with rhyming text for younger children and more detailed text for older children ~ great for an older/younger sibling read aloud). 

Songs:

Zip a dee do dah ~ I sing this to the kids in morning whenever I wake them up. *Ü*
Zig Zag Zoom


Activities:
Zebra Stripes

Mali added black yarn stripes to a printout of a horse to make a zebra. I got this idea from ABC Teach's member site (specific links are to member pages). Mali also did a worksheet from ABC Teach on the Letter Z, in which he circled all the items that begin with the letter Z. (Review of ABC Teach coming soon).

Z Scrapbook


Zebra Puzzle

Malachi loves puzzles so this was a hit.

Zoo Animal Bingo

We used the Zoo Bingo Cards and Zoo Bingo Check Off Sheet from ABC Teach (links to member's site) and played Zoo Bingo. Malachi loves games, so this was fun for him.

Zig Zag Cutting

Mali loves to cut, but he loves airplanes more, so after cutting a few zig zags he asked me to turn the rest of the zig zag papers into paper airplanes.


Math:
Zero ~ If we take all of something away, how many do we have left?
Kumon Activities ~ Malachi continued working in his Numbers 1-30 book.



Nathan worked with him on numbers 1-20. Mali counted the dots and wrote the number in the box. Mali is now up to page 54 in the book. Nathan did such a good job working with him.


Mali says that Nathan is his best friend ~ he asked me to take this picture. *Ü*
