Last Thursday was Laura Numeroff’s birthday, and I thought it’d be fun to read her seminal book: “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” I did a quick Google search and found a story sequencing activity to use with the kids.
And then I saw a post over at ABC and 123 that reminded me of an activity they’d done over at Superheroes and Princesses, so I went there only to be reminded that she was given the idea from a post over at Almost Unschoolers. Wow, what a chain of links……. each one leads to more great ideas.
So, I printed out the sequencing activity I found, and while the kids were making their own cards to make into stickers I very quickly painted the back and waited for them to dry.
Amusingly enough only Princess was willing to try and make stickers. The boys outright refused.
Then while I read the story they quite happily licked their stickers and put them on in order.
There was a bit of grumbling from the boys at first, but eventually they got into it as well.
As you can see eventually they all thought it was a fun project. Even if they had to be convinced of it……
The boys now have a whole list of flavors they want to try.
I already have a whole slew of books to try this with in mind……. So much fun to try!
