For the Love of Lists
This past week we worked on list making with the kids. I always love this lesson because it gets the kids working together and really thinking. I always start this lesson off by asking kids when they would need a list or where they have seen them. I always get grocery list and Christmas list as a response. Next we read the book Bunny Cakes By: Rosemary Wells. The kids love it and it fit perfectly with the lesson.
After reading the book I put the class into groups and gave each group a list recording form (below) and a bag with a title on it ex: Things for camping. Inside the bag were different pictures of item they might need to go camping or take a bath. There were also items that wouldn’t be needed. They had to sort through the pictures and record the items needed on the form.
This activity was easy and was a huge hit. The kids thought the wrong pictures were pretty funny too! Check back in a couple days for our Dino Doubles Hunt activity!
