Lots of dog lovers in our classroom! : )

We measured with dog bones! 

I first taped the bones to the ruler to measure the children's heights, then I encouraged the children to use the bones to measure items all around the classroom.

                   We painted with dog bones!

We played the game doggy, doggy where's your bone? 

To play one child is chosen to be the "doggy" and has to close their eyes while one of the other children is given the bone to hold onto. The children then all hide their hands while we sing the chant, "doggy, doggy where's your bone? Somebody stole it from your home. Wake up doggy. Woof! Woof!" The child playing the dog then turns around and guesses who actually has the bone. The children really love this game and the repetition in the rhyme can really help children to hear the phonemes (the individual units of sound) in the words which will aid them with pre reading and decoding skills.
