My students really enjoyed my Christmas dot to dots. I found the skip counting dot to dots were especially good for my students who were closer to grade level, though my lower functioning students loved the one to tens and one to twenties. How to follow that act?
I decided to explore farm animals to expand vocabulary, do some comparing attributes as well as sorting for attributes. Also, here in Las Vegas there are no opportunities for children to see farm animals. No petting zoos out in the desert. We are all further and further away from the source of our food, but many of our children in poor communities or cities have little access to farms, despite the fact that they are very much a part of our culture and our understanding. So . . . I've made some baby animal dot to dots for teaching counting and skip counting. I plan to add some lesson plans and art projects as well, so I hope these resources will help you as you start your new year!
