Toddler Playschool: Z is for Zoo Animals {free printable}

Pin It
This is the last week of our Toddler Playschool lesson plans. Z was an easy letter as most kiddos this age LOVE the zoo! So I planned lots of fun toddler activities based on the zoo and the animals it houses.  This is our last free toddler activity printable for this alphabet series... and it's definitely an awesome one!
 
 
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

Literacy
Z Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
