Product Description

The teaching theme focus for this packet is Pets, with the emphasis on an overview of all kinds of pets. This is first of 3 units about Pets. The other 2 units focus on Cats, and Dogs.

This pack is developmentally appropriate for preschool and pre-K children, and would be especially helpful as part of a "Families" early childhood curriculum, or taught in November with other units about family and neighborhood.

Besides the activities, songs, stories and games listed for the day, this pack includes these centers and printables:

• Set of photo flashcards of different kinds of pets (12)

• Categorize pictures of pets, and wild animals. Give reasons for choices.

• Set of pets cut-outs (both color and b/w)– use for storytelling, stick puppets, cut and paste.

• Word wall picture/vocabulary strips with header.

• Use pet photo flashcards to make matching game. Older children can match the pet names to the photos.

• Math mats center – count pet fish into a bowl. Print as many bowls as you need, and write the set number in the box

• Word card puzzles – 3 part cards make picture and name of pet.

• Play dough mats (4) – use play dough to follow the directions on the mats.

- Small group - create a predictable reading list: "A ___ can be a pet".

- Song printable to color.

- Discuss and draw - "This is the pet I would choose if I could have any pet in the whole world".





This pack is included in the MEGA BUNDLE November Preschool Themes BUNDLE


Pre-K Theme for a Day is a series of mini teaching topics that are focused towards preschool and Pre-K learners. Although the activities are written to cover one full day of activities and related games, centers and other printables, there are enough ideas to extend the theme longer if needed.

Instantly ready to use. Very few additional items are needed to present the activities besides basic art supplies and cardstock. Use the centers from year to year. This series of teaching units saves time and money, and all activities are solidly supported by the foundational concepts leading to the Common Core Kindergarten standards. You can slide a unit effortlessly into your usual curriculum lesson plans when you are in a hurry, or you can use the units as a central focus of your curriculum.
