The kids are really enjoying our animal a day. We are using this month as review for our preschoolers and they are doing so well. We change our environment of learning often. The kids respond well to this. I never want their learning to become stagnant. We use classroom games as teaching strategies, we relate what we are learning to their lives, make learning interactive, and give them choices.
Letter F – Fox
Foxes are omnivorous mammals that are light on their feet.
Letter G – Gorilla
Gorillas are large apes that are native to Africa. They are typically divided into two groups. The mountain gorilla lives in the mountainous regions of central Africa, while the lowland gorilla lives in the flat, dense forests of central and western Africa.
Letter H – Game of Hops and Slides
Letter I – Inchworm
Inchworms aren’t worms at all, but caterpillars who have legs at both ends of their bodies and none in the middle. This makes them look odd when they move, shifting first one end and then the other, which has the effect of making them arch their bodies as they go.
Letter J – Jellyfish
Jellyfish have no brain, heart, bones or eyes. They are made up of a smooth, bag-like body and tentacles armed with tiny, stinging cells.
