HUNT, DOT and SAY: Have students find every giraffe (for example) on the page, dot each one and then say “giraffe” 1 time for each giraffe they found.
ADAPT TO STUDENT LEVELS: If a student is working at the phrase or sentence level, have him/her make a phrase (if the student cannot produce a phrase quickly, assign a carrier phrase like “I like _____” or “ I see a _____” or “I ate a ______”) or sentence with each little picture. You can also have your students make a sentence with feather (for example) and then find and dot every feather on the page while you address the next student.
CHIPPER CHAT STYLE: If you prefer (or if you don’t have paint daubers), you can use chipper chat style tokens to cover the circles instead.
Once it dries, send home for homework, and when they return it signed, we hang them up proudly for the world to see.
