Our first author study of the year is Kevin Henkes. The kids love his stories, even though a few of his books are a bit long for the beginning of the year when attention spans are at their shortest. My fellow pre-k teacher and I had a hard time finding activities that were appropriate for four and five year old kids who aren't reading and writing yet, so I created some activities on my own.
Here are a few of the activities that we did:
A class book to go with Julius the Baby of the World
A memory match game to go with the book Birds
Cutting practice to go with Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse
A color by number to go with Lilly's Big Day
The pack I created comes with 15 pages of activities to use with preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten aged children. It has activities to go with:-Bailey Goes Camping
-Julius the Baby of the World
-Lilly's Big Day
-Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse
It has a range of activities, including:
-Fishing (motor skills)
-Tracing on straight, curved, and diagonal lines
-Cutting on straight, curved, and diagonal lines
-A class book to display for parents
-Color by Number (up to 5)
Let me know if there's a particular story you would like me to add to the pack or if there's a particular skill you would like me to create an activity for.
