Is Your Mama a Llama – Kindergarten Literature Unit


We have another new Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack which is expanded to include more activities than our units in the past! Explore spring with this new set based on the book Is Your Mama a Llama? by Deborah Guarino.


Set the stage for your unit by gathering extra books and some toys! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.

Don’t have a lot of toys and books to go along with this book? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool!


 

Be sure to purchase the book Is Your Mama a Llama?, or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in other fun LLAMA books and some stuffed or toy animals to bring the theme alive!

 

For this unit, I selected several Kindergarten Math and Literacy Goals to focus on.

Homeschool Kindergarten Literacy Goals Homeschool Kindergarten Math Goals

There are over 20 activities to keep your Kindergartener engaged for quite a while! Many tots, preschoolers, and even 1st graders will enjoy this set! The main focus is Kindergarten but that isn’t exclusive! Below you can see a collage of all the printables included! Click each image to enlarge!

Is Your Mama a Llama?  features six lovable animals using humorous rhymes to help Lloyd the llama discover what kind of animal his mother is.

The printables were created to go along with the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy-rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

Have fun retelling the story and expanding comprehension with our comprehension questions, photo cards, and sequencing activities!

Explore beginning sounds, animal names, sentence structure, sight words, and more with these fun activities!

Explore important Kindergarten math concepts with several different activities.

Use this mini book for some practice with color words!

Take a look at South America!

Finish the Picture Drawing Printables are a fun and simple way to encourage creativity in drawing with a bit of support by providing a traceable outline to get a child started.

Here’s an example of before and after, she used Kwik Stix to color this one.

I scale the pages down to print half sheets.  See how to do that here!

I set up a little invitation to explore and left it on her desk for her like this. I chose two of our fall books, featuring leaves. I also put out a pencil and our fall colored Kwik Stix {still a big favorite around here}.

Fall Leaves -0081

She was excited to see her fall books, she loves when seasonal books come back out! It was fun watching her create!
