Zoo Field Trip Fun

Hi Teacher Friends!  Before our school year ended, we took a kindergarten field trip to the zoo.  This was the first year that our principal suggested we take the little ones on a field trip on one of the days the big kids were completing state testing.  We were glad to have this opportunity.  Usually we have to be so quiet in the building while the testing is going on.   Being quiet is not so easy for kindergarten.

We saw this giraffe waiting to be fed.  You could pay a dollar a leaf and feed the giraffe.  We wanted to do this but the line was so-o-o-o long.  Maybe next time.

We saw these zebras grazing in the morning sun.

The kids were fascinated watching these two kangaroos boxing and playing around.

This little guy climbed right up and posed for us as we walked by.

This slow moving tortoise was a favorite with the kids.

We created an emergent reader to use with the kinderkids.  It practices lots of sight words and focuses on sight words "what" and "saw".  We recently posted the reader on TpT.  If your are interested in the zoo emergent reader, you may check it out at our TpT store.  Here is the link if you want to take a look.

The clipart used in the emergent reader is from KPM Doodles.  Her artwork is adorable.  Please check out her sites at and

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer break.  :)
