Oi Frog! Is a funny and colorful rhyming picture book and a great resource to use when teaching rhyming words to little children. This resource includes follow up activities for Reception Class level based on this hilarious picture book. I used the book in my class for one week using all the different resources and the children LOVED IT! Included in the resource: BINGO MEMORY GAME 6 bingo boards and cards. Print and laminate the boards. Back the rhyming cards with colored paper before cutting them out, cut and laminate. The children are each given a bingo board, the cards are placed upside down and the children take turns to pick a card. If they match a rhyming pair on their board, they place it on the matching picture. If it doesn’t match, they place it back down. The first child to find all the rhyming pairs shouts out BINGO! And is the winner. THREADING CARDS 6 threading rhyming cards. Print, cut, laminate and punch a hole in the circles. The children are given a long piece of wool or thread and practice threading by joining the rhyming words. **PNG FILES ** 36 Individual matching rhyming cards and 18 picture cards and sentences in PNG format (transparent background) for you to make your own digital resources. These are what I used for my EASEL activity. FLASCHARDS Matching rhyming cards and sentence flashcards for you to print, laminate and cut out. We used these daily to help the children learn the different rhymes. As they came into class, they picked a picture and looked for its rhyming sentence, we then went around calling out our rhyming sentence at the start of the lesson.

Download for FREE! Cut, laminate and use in a literacy center when introducing s,a,t,p,i,n cvc words. Children sound out and blend the word and match it to the picture. I stuck them on the back of a piece of furniture that divided the classroom and used it as a satation. I used velcro so the children could repeatedly stick and unstick the words to the pictures. Great for beginning readers. Please leave a review :)

Handa's Surprise Animal Adjectives

Handa's Surprise Animal Adjectives

(0)
A great resource to use when brainstorming adjectives that describe the different animals in the story “Handa’s Surprise.” Children are very quick to learn the names of the fruit and animals in the story but often struggle with descriptive words. I created this resource to extend the children’s vocabulary while completing our “Handa’s Surprise” Unit. There are two versions depending on the children’s ability. First, there is a set of boards with blank spaces for those children who find it easier to remember the adjectives. The other set of boards has the adjectives included for each animal so the children can match the card they pick. HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE: First of all, brainstorm with the children adjectives for each animal from the story “Handa’s Surprise.” Use pages 23-26 to support you with examples of adjectives for each animal. You can print, laminate, and have this at hand in the classroom for the children to refer to. Once the children are familiar with some adjectives for each animal, choose the set of boards you want to use depending on the children’s ability. Print and laminate the boards. Print, laminate, and cut the adjective flashcards on pages 16-22 Give each child a board. There are seven boards you could play with a group of 7 children or play in pairs, so 14 children in total. Have the adjective flashcards spread and placed upside down. Pick a card (or you could have each child pick a card) read the adjective. Whoever has the board with the animal to which the adjective chosen corresponds places the adjective on their board. The first child to place all the adjectives describing the animal on their board wins.

Handa's Surprise Resources

Handa’s Surprise is a lovely story ideal for learning about fruits, animals or a topic about Africa. We focused on learning the different adjectives to describe the fruits. This resource includes follow-up activities for KG level based on this picture book. I used the book in my class for one week using all the different resources. I started the first few sessions by reading the story and then using the flashcards to remind the children of the different fruits and adjectives describing them. A game they loved was “Musical Pairs,” where I gave each child one of the pictures, and when the music stopped, they would have to go around looking for the child holding the adjectives that described their fruit. You can use these activities as a follow-up after reading the book “Handa’s Surprise” (book not included). Included in this resource: BINGO MEMORY GAME 6 bingo boards and cards. Print and laminate the boards. Back the cards with colored paper before cutting them out, cut and laminate. The children are each given a bingo board, the cards are placed upside down and the children take turns to pick a card. If they match the descriptive words to a fruit on their board, they circle the fruit with a whiteboard marker on their board. If it doesn’t match, they place it back down. The first child to circle all the fruits on their board shouts out BINGO! And is the winner. THREADING CARDS 4 threading cards. Print, cut, laminate, and punch a hole in the circles. The children are given a long piece of wool or thread and practice threading by joining the animals to the fruit that they took in the story. Encourage the children to use the following langauge, “The giraffe took the spiky-leaved pineapple,” to help them recall the different adjectives used in the book. FLASHCARDS Fruit picture cards to match with the adjective cards. We used these daily to help the children learn the different fruits and adjectives. For example, as they came into class, they picked a picture of a fruit and looked for the adjectives that describe it; we then went around, saying i.e “I have the sweet-smelling guava”. STORYBOARD Children cut out the animals and fruit and place them in order on the storyboard. They then use the storyboard to help them retell the story in their own words. SPINNERS Cut out and laminate the spinners and arrows. Use a split pin to attach the arrow to the middle of the spinner. You can use the spinner as a whole class or with a small group of children. A great resource to help the children learn all the adjectives for the different fruits in the story “Handa’s Surprise.” ADJECTIVE WORKSHEETS, COLOURING SHEETS, SENTENCE WRITING PRACTICE WORKSHEETS Also includes some cutting and sticking activities for fine motor practice. Print and assign to the children each day or use in your Literacy Centres. ANSWER KEY INCLUDED
