Are We Going to Greenview?

Hello, Seniors' Class!

The first thing I would like you to try is a self-assessment for listening. You can find it HERE. Call me over and I will help you get started!

Our field trip was cancelled due to rain. Now the trip is planned for this Friday, but not if it is still wet and muddy there. You can go watch a video about Greenview Aviaries Park and Zoo.

On this website, you can learn the names of many animals, the word for the babies, etc.

You can use this YouTube video to learn some wild animal names.

There are more wild animal names on this video.

This video teaches the names of farm animals using full sentences.

Here is a quiz on some common animal names. How many can you get right?

If you want to practice spelling the names of some zoo animals, click HERE.

If you do well, try the moderate quiz.

If that's easy, try the difficult quiz. Here you will find the MORE difficult quiz.

Finally, here is the expert level quiz.


If you would like another listening lesson about telephones, please go HERE.

As always, call me if you need any help. --Kelly
