1-2-3 Come Make An Alphabet Booklet With Me
This emergent reader is a wonderful activity to do before or after your zoo field trip, as most of the letters are associated with an animal. This colorful FREEBIE is part of my jumbo (200-page) "Wild About the Alphabet packet in my TpT shop.
I have another cover that doesn't say zoo and is simply an ABC book, if you prefer that. The FREEBIE is in color, but I also have a black & white version, so that students can make their own booklet to trace, write and color.
To practice comprehension, ask students which letters didn't have an animal associated with them, like Ii is for ice cream, or which animals would they probably not see at a zoo, like a dog or cat.
The packet also includes an alphabet anchor chart/poster in color. I have a black and white student version in the big Wild Packet.
Posters can also be used as an assessment tool, or to play an "I spy" game. Simply call out a letter; children find and color the animal associated with it.
Continue saying a letter 'til all of them have been colored in. This is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess.
