We love using a favorite picture book as the springboard into various learning activities. This month the The Virtual Book Club for Kids is reading books by Laura Numeroff. Will you be joining in and reading along with us? If so, here are some fun resources and activities to go along with some of her books.
The official Laura Numeroff site is currently being redesigned, but check back soon for new features and an updated kids’ section.
Resources to go with the “If You Give…” Books
On the MouseCookieBooks.com you’ll find book activities, games, songs, and printables to go along with the “If You Give…” series. You’ll also find an “If You Give…” series teaching guide with over 40 activity ideas.
Making Learning Fun has a collection of free printables to go along with many of the “If You Give …” books.
Elementary age kids can use this writing unit from Adventures in Mommydom to write their own “If You Give…” stories.
