Cow Visual Discrimination File Folder Game

Here’s a fun file folder game, which can be used to help children sharpen their discrimination skills. Correctly matching up the cows will encourage children to learn how to recognize subtle differences between objects. The ability to do so, will aid children in every learning aspect of the classroom. I chose to use cows for my farm unit, but this concept can be adapted to fit any unit. I hope that your children enjoy this as much as mine have.

MATERIALS USED:

– File folder
– Our free cow template
– Color coding labels
– Construction paper
– Scissors
– Glue

Feed the Bunnies Counting Activity

I’ve been teaching for many years, and I am always looking for inexpensive, new ways to present learning opportunities to the children. I recently put together this free Feed the Bunnies math game. This colorful teaching tool attracts the children’s attention, and increases number sense (counting, number recognition, etc.).

We will be using this activity as an extension to the story Home For a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. This book is about a bunny is in search of the perfect home in spring. However, when he meets a family of robins, a frog, and a groundhog, the bunny realizes that not every home he finds will suit him. The bunny eventually comes upon the perfect home and someone to share it with. The beautiful illustrations of Garth Williams bring the story to life.

MATERIALS USED:

– White cardstock
– Plastic cups
– Our free printable numbered bunnies (1-10)
– Googly eyes
– Cotton balls
– Stapler
– Easter grass
– Plastic carrots (Walmart)
