Activities linked to storybook 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell

 Creativity:  The children were given a choice - waterpaints, crayons and markers. 
 First they observed the story character, note its features and then draw it.

Shared reading:  One of the boys wore the story jacket 
and gradually took out the characters
from the pockets while the teacher narrated the story.
Another boy sequenced the story cards - an opportunity to extend
language development and comprehension.  The children also learned about the
beginning, middle and end of the story. 

 Animal/number puzzles:  This was an exercise where the children
enhanced hand-eye coordination to manipulate the pieces into the correct position.  
They learned how to deal with the problem by trial and error.

The number line was a great aid to help children recall 
which number is next if in difficulty.
