Children will meet a little joey bouncing in mother kangaroo’s pouch, watch little cubs prance around mother lion and swim with a baby dolphin calf in the deep blue sea in this colorful classic by Eric Carle.
The Does A Kangaroo have A Mother, Too? Book Companion will help your little learners develop sequencing skills while learning about animals and their babies. It will also help children with identifying words from their beginning and ending sounds.
Does A Kangaroo have A Mother, Too? Book Companion
What you need:
- Emergent Reader (assembled beforehand)
- Coloring Pencils/ Crayons
How to use this resource:
Print, cut and laminate the story props and use these to re-tell the story. Hand out the pictures of the animals and their babies to the children and ask them to bring it to the front and to stick it on the board as the story is being told.
After listening to the story again, hand out the emergent readers. The children cut out the pictures of the adult animals, fold it on the line and glue it onto the correct page (so that it flaps open, and the baby animal is underneath). There are 2 copies, one where the children can trace the words and one where the children that can write already, can write the words. When the children are done, they can color the pictures.
