Activities For Favorite Books


Are your kiddos bananas over Pete the Cat? Then I think they'll like this puzzle game which comes in black and white so students can make their own, as well as one in color to use as an independent math center. 

The latest Pete the Cat book features the popular "5 Little Pumpkins" poem, so I designed this "trace the numbers" and "color the pumpkins" that are "rolling out of sight" on a skateboard worksheet.

Here's a no-mess hand print craft that's sure to become a keepsake, with the added bonus that it helps kiddos sequence & retell Pete the Cat's "I Love My White Shoes" story.

15 pages.

"Elmer" by David McKee is a wonderful story about the importance and beauty of diversity. It's one of my students' favorite back to school books.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with fifty or fewer distinct words?  After doing some checking, I discovered that the bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50.  Ironically, even though Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham using EXACTLY 50 words, it's been reported that Cerf never paid up.
