Animal Quilt

I used this as a group research project. We would write in two corners things we knew about the animal. The other two corners were for things we learned. We added a few to our bulletin board each day. This was so popular that the kids each took parts home for their own scrap books.

Dumpy LaRue Tic tac toe

Cut the inside squares to create cards. Each player gets four of a kind with the odd pig left to the side. If no winner is determined then pig wins and the odd pig is put on the board.

LaRue Says" " game

This game is played like Simon Says only with Dumpy LaRue drawing a card to tell them what to do. I have included a blank set of cards so that your group can add their favorite activities to this game. I suggest laminating the cards for durability.

Help Swimmy

This is based on the story concept found in the book Swimmy.

Raindrops and Rabbits Up-Close

Print, laminate and cut-out both sheets. Give the first set to the children to guess what the pictures might be. If you have recently read the book Raindrops and Rabbits you can give the the hint that all of these things were in the book. When all of the guessing is complete, show the children the second set of cards and tell them the circled area was what they saw.
