Our FUN with wild animals began with this story, "Dear Zoo". We watched this version on YouTube. It's very interactive and the kids loved it.
After watching the read aloud we discussed which animals would make good pets and which would not. Their answers were very interesting.
"My Mom would NOT want a lion in the house." -DeShawn
"A giraffe is too tall to be in my house. It would break the roof"
We practiced our colors and counting too.
The kids had a blast doing it too.
Our kiddos used some fine motor skills painting with a fork.
The PM kiddos practiced counting.
