Simply Animals

I took out a tub of our animal toys and conducted some simple activities with Doll.
I made a place mat depicting the sea, land and sky.
We randomly picked out some animal toys and sorted them according to where they can be found i.e. sea, land or sky.   

I printed out some animal prints and Doll matched the animal toys to the cards.

We sorted some animals according to the number of legs they had.

As always, making her read is my priority. This week she is learning sight words 'i' and 'am'. I made sure all the cards repeated these two sight words so that it gets drilled into her head. She read aloud the cards and matched it to respective animal toys.

I've been neglecting the mandarin bit. Just a little phrase for her to retain words that she has learnt. Also, to help her make sense the words that she learnt.

Another way of AB patterning. Instead of pictures, this time I used words. She had to read and find the corresponding colored animal.


  1. There are some great works here! I really need to pick up some more figurines so we can do things like this at home :)

  2. Thanks! I hope you have as much fun as we did! :)

  3. I like your sneaky reading ways! lol I'm going to have to try that idea with my pattern-loving child.
