1. Words to Find
Find the words from the story. Words include: bull, sit, bee, tree, and flower.

Work on number recognition and counting as you help Ferdinand find his way back to the flowers!

4. Bull Knock-Out Game
Promote basic math skills with this engaging game.
Cut the strips out and tape together to form one long strip. Let your student roll two dice and add the two numbers. Place a marker on the bull with that number; it’s knocked-out! Keep playing until all bulls have a marker on them.
5. Sense of Smell
Learn more about your sense of smell and discuss good and bad smells. Why is a sense of smell useful?
Activity Extension: Get ten film canisters or small containers. Put the same strong smelling object in two canisters. Cover each object with a cotton ball. Let your student try to match the smells! Ideas: cinnamon, lemon, garlic, orange peel, lavender, coffee beans, etc.
If your student is interested, consider grabbing this printable sense of smell emergent reader, Skunk’s Perfume.
