Listening and Some Tippy Toeing

Apr 11, 2013

Anyone read Tippy Toe Chick Go?
It is such a cute story!  My husband drew a really spectacular (one of our Fancy Nancy words this week) diagram of Tippy Toe's solution but I just can't find the image on my computer.  I will have to search some more and then share it.

I was inspired this week by Katherine Marie's photography.
I am in love with her cute little chicks!  I had to do something with them.  Hmmm...
We decided that we needed to work on the listening standards with our Green Chimps.  Listening has been a challenge all year (next year...we will jump on that right away.  Our brains are already formulating a plan).
I turned these cute little chicks into a listening activity.  Here is what I came up with:
If you would like it, just click on the image! To do this activity, you need:
one large circle for the body
one triangle for the beack
two little circles for the eyes
one sheet of paper to glue and draw on
Here are some images on how the chick turned out.
Aren't they adorable!?!!

My amazing teammate, Karen, also completed a chart to describe Tippy Toe's character in the story.  These were the answers from our Green Chimps!!! It was exciting to see how well they did.
This was a fun "take and make" activity.  So I am linking up with 2nd Grade Pad to share this.
Have a good Friday!
