Year of the Rooster Worksheets
This Chinese New Year make use of our writing and maths resources to bring the Year of the Rooster in to your classroom.
Finger tracing is a great way to introduce writing and letters to very young children. This worksheet features a rooster, great for farmyard, bird or Chinese zodiac activities.

These rooster notebooking pages are handy for a farm project. We have two versions; one lined and one with space for a diagram.

Print our Year of the Rooster jigsaw on to card, cut in to strips and ask children to complete the jigsaw using the number 1 - 10 along the bottom to help. For older kids you could cut off the numbers and leave them to work the picture out by themselves!
We have colour and black and white versions of our Year of the Rooster ordinal numbers jigsaw to choose from. Print on to card, colour in the picture if using the black and white versions, laminate and cut into strips and then arrange the strips in order from first to tenth.
