Reptile Story: make a list of reptile-related words, such as eggs, cold-blooded, scales, slither, tortoise, snake, dinosaur, etc. Write these words on separate slips of paper and hide them around the room. Create a story together by finding the words. As each child finds a word have them add a sentence to the story.
Rep-TILES: cut out small "tiles" from various colors of paper. Use tiles for tactile graphing. For instance, get a bag of skittles and have the kids graph how many there are if each color. Tgese tiles coykd also be used to create mosaic artwork!
