Ideas for Use

30 Rainforest Animals Words - Suggestions for Use


  • IMMERSE YOUR CHILDREN IN WORDS...

  • GENERAL IDEAS FOR STORING AND USING THEME WORD CARDS

  • Have tried to incorporate main animals usually associated with rainforests from around the world.

  • Classify animals found in different types of rainforests / different continents / live in the different strata layers of a rainforest..

  • Some great longer words here for syllable clapping and phoneme / grapheme recognition within the syllables.

  • Use with concept books such as 'Look at the _________ add adjectives before the animals also.

  • Classify by size / shape / colour / way they move / what they eat / favourite animal graph.

  • Each child acts out an animal - other children pick the card which matches.

  • Grab all the other animal theme cards australian animals, farm animals, zoo animals, pets, sea animals, minibeasts and classify them in all sorts of different ways.

  • Make up a funny rhyming sentence for each animal - eg. The anaconda from way out yonder, The green tree frog who lives in a log, the giant bandicoot who played on a flute. and more....love all that rhyme play!!

  • Each child picks an animal to explore and research 2-5 interesting facts about their animal. You could use the 'Interesting facts about ________' concept book.

  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities .

  • When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes (small wash powder boxes or yoghurt containers work well, or hanging pockets for continued 'grab and go' games and writing reference.

  • All the activities from '101 Fun Flashcard Activities' are fantastic with these Words ...... (DON'T FORGET TO UTILIZE THIS TERRIFIC RESOURCE EVERYDAY)

  • Hi im a volunteer at the Space and Technology Museum in Carnarvon while im teaching here and last week i leant them my laminated posters of your planets. you wouldn't beleive the amount of people visiting the museum who just loved them. They were close to the entrance of the museum and eveyone stopped to look at them first. We have many families who are travelling around Australia stop by and they have children in tow...often havent been to school for 3 months or so but they just love your posters that i have made. Im going to have to do another set as the museum which is manned by volunteers only doesnt want to give them up now. i hope you dont mind. Your logo k-3 teacher resource is still on the bottom of every poster i made up and so it is acknowledged.

  • Teaching KPP is easy. What i did at the beginning of the year is plan for both groups in small group time. Have the EA take the kindy's some days and you the PP and swap around on other days. Have large group where you are all doing the same thing and then split the group for development ability type activities. The EA is a godsend and if you have a parent or two as well who can help at table rotation time its fantastic.When doing the phonic sounds just do harder activities for the PP where the K are just sighting them sometimes for the first time. Simplify their activities. Both PP and K love the music and movement so not hard there and art and craft is pretty similar too. You'll find those who want to learn to read will be ready before you know it and there might even be some Kindy kids who want to do this too depending on their family background. You tube all ages love so use it and IWB activities lots. Good Luck!! and enjoy and tell the Year 1 and 2 teachers they cant have them they're yours!!
