This is a basic worksheet to start practicing animal names for early readers. The knowledge of short vowel sounds are enough to use this worksheet. They can first look at the picture and guess, then try to read the names and copy them on the blanks. Then they can colour the pictures. This is useful to talk about animals, their colours, relate to the alphabet sound. In an advanced situation we can even ask the children if they can guess where we find these animals and what they eat etc. Funny animal cliparts are fun for the kids to colour. One can even ask the kids to use lower case letters instead to check if they can relate them to the capitals. Surely there are more creative ways to use this worksheet. Happy to get more suggestions. Thank you.
