This is a fun and easy craft to accompany Eric Carle’s Rooster’s Off To See The World. It is simple enough for preschool and the beginning of Kindergarten. It reinforces cutting skills, gluing, sequencing, and numbers.
It is a perfect activity for the beginning of the school year to reinforce routines, learn where materials are kept, and follow directions. The students complete one page per day to establish a familiar pattern of “seat-work”. Students learn where scissors and glue are stored and print their name on the back of each paper per day.
During the 5 days to complete this craft we read and re-read Rooster’s Off To See The World. There is an Easy-To-Read version that we use to dramatize the story. Children wear placards to identify their characters. It is an easy story to act-out and it builds comprehension for ELL students.
Finally, you can print extra pictures of the animal silhouettes to create a graph of your favorite character or provide extra pictures to use at the writing table.
There are 14 pages in this item.
Thank you for stopping by Kindergarten with Susie. Creating materials for young children is my life-long passion and I hope to make a difference for you and your little ones.
