Zoo Animal Toss- A Fun Listening Comprehension Game

HAVE FUN WITH THIS SIMPLE GAME- perfect for little learners! My Kinders are starting our theme on the zoo with our minibook 'Olivia y Arturo van al zoológico' in which our friends see a variety of zoo animals... so, to practice listening comprehension skills we are playing 'Zoo Animal Toss'! Each kiddo gets a zoo animal- I have tons of little animals I've gotten over the years which I use for all kinds of activities. (TOOB brand) Kids stand in a circle and a basket is placed in the center. Call out a particular animal- everyone who has that animal tries to toss it in the basket. Once all animals have been tossed, count up how many are in the basket. I put the number on the board (great to practice numbers, too!) and challenge them to try and get more in the basket the next round. Pass the animals out again- I try to give kids different animals each round. We play about 4-5 rounds in a class :)



THIS IS SUPER FUN and could be played with any vocabulary set, as long as you have manipulatives to toss- fruits, veggies, farm animals, you name it! Enjoy!
