Pets Unit & a Giveaway!

This week we will be doing Pets. I know, I know, how random. First Pumpkins, now pets. And after Pets, it's leaves. I don't know how I came up with sticking Pets in the middle of everything, but the kids have so much fun! Last year we did Pets for 2 weeks. I have it planned for 1 week this year, but my MWF AM students absolutely LOVE cats & dogs..so we'll see what happens!

I have put together a pets unit that includes the following activities:

Dog Bone Counting. Students either look at the number on the dogs collar and count out small bones OR you can roll a die and the student finds the card with that number, then counts. Cards go up to number 6.


Beginning sound clips. Look at the picture. Match the clothespin to the beginning sound. If you are the lucky winner of this unit, there is also a a recording sheet for this activity, where students write the correct letter for each picture. 


Capital matching. I will be using velcro for this game, it's just not pictured. Students find the matching capital and velcro it on the right card. This too has activity sheets. Students must draw a line from one side of the page to the other matching picture & letter.


The unit also includes a writing/tracing practice sheet, or cutting practice. Use to your preference. There is NOT a dramatic play set included. I have a vet's office set from Lakeshore that I will be using along with some stuffed animals, food bowls, food/treat bags, and collars.

Doesn't everything automatically become a million times cuter when DJ Inkers is involved?! I purchased their critter craze CD on sale this summer & LOVE all of the animals. *light bulb* use these pet images for our Pet's Unit! (must have been a bad light bulb because...I CAN'T SELL ANYTHING WITH DJ INKERS CLIPART!!-doh.)

Maybe one day they'll offer a license. Until then, perhaps I can squeak in one FREE unit giveaway? Is that wrong? It's a .pdf no one can take the images. (let's hope it's ok, because here goes a giveaway!)

1. Follow my blog. Leave a comment letting me know you do.
2. Follow my TpT store. Leave a comment letting me know you do.
