Have you ever wondered how to wash a woolly mammoth? Well you are in luck! In "How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth" by Michelle Robinson, there is a step-by-step guide on how to get your woolly mammoth clean! You may have to give him cake to get him in the bath and be careful not to get it in his eyes!
I've created a book companion to go along with this book, packed with great activities for your preschool, kinder, and 1st grade kiddos!
This companion includes the following activities:
- Woolly Mammoth and Vocabulary Items: Review the vocabulary prior to reading the story. Have your students tell you what each item is or have them receptively identify them.
- Story Map: Help tell the story by putting the items in order! How do you wash a woolly mammoth? What do you do first?
- WH-Questions: Two levels of questions to be used throughout the story, some with visual cues and some open-ended.
- Story Sequencing: Put the story in the right order using the sequencing cards! What happened first? How did the story end?
- Woolly Mammoth Prepositions: Pick a preposition card and a bath-related item out of a bag and place the item where directed or give the direction to a peer (“Put the towel under the woolly mammoth”).
- Bath Time Dot Art: To be used for articulation or open-ended activities. Color in a bubble for each word you say!
- Rubber Ducky Actions: 19 bath-related verb cards (i.e. wash, clean, etc.) that can be used to work on verb tenses (past, present, future) or to target following directions (“Wash the woolly mammoth”).
- Open-Ended Game Board: Get the Woolly Mammoth into the bath! Watch out for the soap on the floor!
