Duck and Goose Packet

This is a guest post from Annie at Kindergarten At Heart.  I taught kindergarten with Tammy for five years.  We had the best time. :)  She has inspired me to blog.  Be sure to come visit my blog where I share ideas for all teachers that are kindergarten at heart. 

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Duck and Goose books by Tad Hill. The illustrations are adorable and the books lend themselves to many different learning activities for kids. For my first packet I had to start with my favorite books.  :)

This packet has activities for reading, writing, math and art. All the activities are based on the stories Duck and Goose and Duck, Duck, Goose by Tad Hill. It is an easy packet to print and use for a substitute teacher. Simply print the packet and fill it into your daily schedule.

You can access this Duck and Goose Reading, Writing, Math and Art packet by visiting my TPT store.
Along with the packet I am offering two more Duck and Goose FREEBIES right here.
The first FREEBIE is venn diagram I created to compare Duck and Goose. In order to download this FREE document simply click here.

This is also a fun idea to do with the story Duck and Goose. I drew the characters from the cover. Then I cut circles on a die cut machine. The students colored the polka dots on the circle with crayon. Then they finger painted over the circle with sweetened condensed milk. It made the balls look glossy. This is a really fun and easy activity.


For younger kids you can even use circle stickers for the polka dots. We did this for kindergarten round-up one year and it worked great.

In this last Duck and Goose FREEBIE students will decorate their own ball. Then they will write about something they would like to do outside with their ball. To download this FREEBIE just click here.

To find my entire Duck and Goose Reading, Writing, Math and Art Packet visit my TPT store.  I hope you enjoy these books as much as I do.
