Harker Preschool’s Clover Cottage celebrated the completion of its yearlong Zoo-phonics program with a special “zoo week.” Each child brought in a stuffed animal from home, corresponding with animals from the program, which was then used in a variety of educational activities throughout the week.
Activities included sorting animals, counting the number of similar animals, creating descriptive sentences about the animals and matching the various animals to the appropriate letters. The Clovers ended the week with a zoo party; they dressed up in animal clothing, had zoo-themed snacks, played parachute games with the zoo friends and much more. The children had an “animaltastic” time!
