Preschool Lesson: Learning Animal Names

This week we will continue learning to identify colors.We will also be learing to identify animal names and sounds that they make. Pooh Bear already can name several animals and identify the animal with the sounds they make. I will add a few animals that he has not already learned and hopefully find some fun games to make this lesson enjoyable.

1. Refrigerator animal magnets. We purchased animal magnets from Melissa Doug.  Each time we are making a meal we ask Pooh Bear to show me the (animal name). Pooh Bear moves the animals as he identifies  each animal. We also ask what sound does the (animal name) make? As we move along we will add more animals to the set. 

2. I am looking for some fun animal crafts to work on this week.

3. We will be reading our animal books and playing with some toy farm animal figures.

4.We will use coloring pages from: http://www.first-school.ws/theme/animals/cp_farm.htm

5. We have planed a fun surprise outing to a animal petting farm.

6. We are adding the colors: green, violet, and orange to or color games from last week.
