Preschool - Z Day

This week was Z day for Preschool. It was at our house again, as one of the Moms in our group recently had a baby, and we worked the schedule to give her a few weeks off.

Here are some of the activities we did:

We were Zookeepers, and built cages for all of our zoo animals using Connectors and Straws.

As the kids put the animals in their cages, we talked about what letter each animal name starts with and what sound that letter makes. It was a good letter review, now that we're at the end of the alphabet.

Then the kids fed the animals and took care of them.

We read some Z books: ZOOM! by Robert Munsch, and 1 2 3 to the Zoo, by Eric Carle.

We glued some Zebras to coloured papers and gave the Zebras black stripes.


  1. I was just thinking of doing a Zoo preschool next time and now you posted this, it couldn't be more perfect! As usual I plan on using all your ideas, thanks!! I've never read either of those books, I'll have to check them out.

  2. Oh I want to be in preschool..We loved Robert Munsch books here,,,Looks so fun Cassandra..Another great day for the kids....good job!

  3. Those zoo animals look so happy! What great caretakers :)

    Where do you come up with all these great ideas? You should write a book for those of us who are substantially less creative.


I love hearing from you! :)
