When Spring comes and Easter is on its way, this is the perfect time to be teaching Oviparous Animals in Kindergarten. Come along to see great and exciting ways to integrate this topic into other subject areas with this teacher favorite Print & Play Pack.
Teaching Oviparous Animals in Kindergarten
Let’s start by talking about what oviparous animals are. Oviparous animals are animals that lay eggs. Spring is a perfect time to talk about all things new life, animals and babies, and of course eggs. Discuss what animals lay eggs. Many students may know some animals that lay eggs, but I am confident that this sort will help them to learn more! Check out this pocket chart sort.
What about Viviparous Animals?
When teaching oviparous animals in Kindergarten, you are also teaching viviparous animals by default. Viviparous animals are animals that give birth to babies. Many learners know that cats and dogs have babies, but the term viviparous may seem too big, but your kinders can say it and use it.

Integration to Writing
Now that your students have dug a little deeper into teaching oviparous animals in Kindergarten, use this opportunity to have your little learners write about it. First, they choose an oviparous animal and glue it down. Next, they write a sentence about it. Finally, they continue. Your little learners will love to pick their own picture and you will find them generating great sentences when they have this ability.
