This is a delightful 92 pg book with original animal images which was created in 1850. The original work stated that there are "No words in the English Language beginning with X" - does this tell me that the xylophone was invented much later? Zoommm off I go to do some research!!
What I have done is Used both the Capital and Lower Case letter on either side of the graphic,
with the word of the animal below the graphic.
At the end of the Animal Alphabet I have created pages from A to Z so that younger learners can test their own general knowledge from everyday things they learn about animals around us and in the wild. Certainly a lot more is known now than in 1850. :)
This simple book is designed to give your child the opportunity to show off his or her
knowledge, drawing skills or even cutting and pasting. All of these activities work towards
developing fine motor skills in young children and word/picture recognition - all essential for a growing child.
The Illustrated pages of the Alphabet can also be printed on to card stock and laminated for
protection, cut out and used as flash cards to help with word/picture recognition and also to assist the child in familiarising himself or herself with both Upper and Lower Case letters.
Your child will benefit with parent/educator interaction doing the fun exercises and "research" on the activity pages.
Comprehensive Lesson Plans & Ideas are included that address the following:
Your child will
â€¢ Recite the alphabet and identify the sounds each letter makes.
â€¢ Understand that printed letters represent spoken language.
â€¢ Identify the names of animals that begin with particular letter sounds and draw pictures to represent these living creatures.
