We All Went on Safari

I'm linking up with Collaboration Cuties for the math book linky. Here's one of my favorite books I use when we learn about African or zoo animals.
 
There are bold pictures and rhyming words too!
 
 
 
 
After reading this Swahili counting 1-10 book, I have my students work in pairs to make a page for our classbook about going on a safari. In the past, my students have used numbers and number words, and they drew matching pictures. I have also used addition math stories. This past year, we were working on greater or less than so my students wrote a math sentence using the symbols. Here are samples from my current class:
 


 
Typically I have my students work in pairs for a page in our classbook, We All Go On Safari. I have an odd number of students (19), so sometimes I have one group worked in a small group of 3 students. Sometimes, I may work with an individual student. Here's a freebie to use in your class.

  2. I have never read this book. Thanks for the suggestion.
    You student artwork looks really sweet. I'm sure they enjoy drawing the safari animals.
    Have a great week.
