This is a wonderful packet to do after you read the story If You Take A Mouse To School by Laura Numeroff.
This packet includes: a class book where your current students write a page of advice for your next year's class; a mouse "craftivity" where students jot one piece of advice underneath their mouse's head (it flips up); plus a bookmark from you and one for your students to make for an in-coming kiddo.
Choose from 11 sets of cards to play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games. Children can match animals to animals, animals to their symbols, or animal cards to word cards. Includes background information about Chinese New Year, a list of what the animal traits are, along with the years that they were the special animal + a spinner game.
