PreKinders

Pre-K & Preschool theme ideas for learning about pets. As a few dog commands are called out, the children act them out. The children choose which kind of pet they want to be. Children roll play dough into little balls to make dog food or cat food and place them into a bowl. One year, one of my students also had the idea to roll Model Magic into little balls for pet food and paint the pieces brown. Children used the pretend food in the pet store and in their pretend play with the toy dogs and cats. Children made pet food, dog houses, pet toys, and leashes to sell in their pet store. Our graph title was “What is your favorite pet?” In the top of the chart, I placed pet clipart. The children chose which pet they would like to have, and placed their name card in the pocket chart graph. For each set of cards, half of the cards are stamped with dogs and half with cats to represent the numbers 0-4. Children work in pairs, and have an equal amount of cards: one child has cat cards, the other child has dog cards. The player whose card has the most cats or dogs keeps both cards for that round of the game. In the house center, we have toy dogs and cats with pet food bowls, rawhide bones, pet carrier, collars, leash, pet bed, pet toys. Schedule a visit from a K-9 police dog and ask the officer to talk about the importance of working dogs.

The Humane Society of the United States

Here are some tips that we hope will help you find your pet. Contact local animal shelters and animal control agencies. File a lost pet report with every shelter within a 60-mile radius of your home and visit the nearest shelters daily, if possible. Provide these agencies with an accurate description and a recent photograph of your pet. Notify the police if you believe your pet was stolen. Ask neighbors, letter carriers and delivery people if they have seen your pet. Hand out a recent photograph of your pet and information on how you can be reached if your pet is found. Post notices at grocery stores, community centers, veterinary offices, traffic intersections, pet supply stores and other locations. Include your pet’s sex, age, weight, breed, color and any special markings. When describing your pet, leave out one identifying characteristic and ask the person who finds your pet to describe it. When talking to a stranger who claims to have found your pet, ask him to describe the pet thoroughly before you offer any information. If he does not include the identifying characteristic you left out of the advertisements, he may not really have your pet. Be particularly wary of people who insist that you give or wire them money for the return of your pet. Ask your local animal shelter or veterinarian if permanent methods of identification are available in your area.
