Young readers practice identifying individual words in print using the activity One Duck Stuck. They listen to the story of One Duck Stuck, then they match numbers and words in a self-directed center. They also practice their writing on paper and illustrate the story of One Duck Stuck. Recommendations for multimedia projects are given.
First and second graders read a selection entitled, "Dilly and Her Ducks." They complete four multiple choice questions in which they read a word in a box and choose the word that can help they pronounce the word. They decide how to break the word ducklings into syllables in the fifth question.
Primary learners read the story "Five Little Ducks" and practice counting backwards with a variety of activities on PowerPoint. Math, reading, and life science come together in this resource, which is one of five about barnyard animals using stories, and integrating cross-curricular connections. Includes a clever paper plate duck project that can incite discussion at home.
Help your beginning and intermediate English Learners develop academic vocabulary with this activity about ordinal numbers. Read and discuss the Eric Carle book Ten Little Rubber Ducks. Your ELs use ordinal number cards to practice stating where different duck cutouts are placed in a line. Then they place themselves in a line according to your verbal directions using ordinal numbers.
Make origami ducks with your class to reinforce geometry concepts and vocabulary; develop fine motor and visual translation skills; and enrich study of Japanese culture, the pond habitat, or migration. Create a whole group "worksheet" about shapes and symmetry with a word bank. Links to instructions for the duck folds are difficult to follow. Look online for other models and practice, practice, practice; you'll need to master the folds to support children during independent practice.
