Colouring sheets (3), nature-themed, EYFS/KS1

Colouring sheets (3), nature-themed, EYFS/KS1

Children will learn about the natural world around them as they colour these cheerful pictures, as well as developing pencil control and colour sense. As they bring their pictures to life, they will be inspired to dream and wonder about the creatures and their settings, which in turn will fire creative expression. The three sheets represent a young robin, ducks on a pond and mini-beasts in a meadow.

Male & Female Animal Names

Male & Female Animal Names

My Male & Female Animals Names actually uses a familiar 3-part card approach to introducing the nomenclature in a way that is very familiar to the young Montessori reader. They do enjoy the visual images quite a lot, so it seems to be a logical first step before the traditional presentation of masculine and feminine. (Which I do intend to get to someday! So many ideas, so little time!) Here is a variety of 20 animals that children will enjoy looking at, talking about and learning new names…some of which are sure to give the giggles. I made enough examples that you should be able to easily make several rotations of the materials over time. To make, just print on card stock, cut and laminate if you wish. Thanks so much for considering my work! Mary

'Fish are...' Writing & Colouring Sheet + Guide

'Fish are...' Writing & Colouring Sheet + Guide

This resource comprises a writing/colouring sheet + a one-sheet guide for teachers, both black-and-white, PDFs. The fish-themed writing and colouring sheet - or picture poem frame - is a simple and attractive activity for EYFS. It offers a single line (at the top) for descriptive writing, with the starter words ‘Fish are’. The space below is filled with a large, hand-drawn scene of a patterned fish under the sea. The guide provides a list of relevant words to prompt for as needed, and two suggestions for extending the literacy aspect. The resource supports multiple curricular areas, in particular: Literacy, Expressive Arts & Design, Physical Development (fine motor skills) and Understanding The World. The attractive design has been proven to motivate young children to think up and try to write descriptive words for the fish, and to experiment with colours and pencil control. Enthuse children in the topic first, perhaps by showing pictures or videos of fish in the sea, looking at some in an aquarium, reading a story about a fish and enacting them together.
