Well...I have started working much harder on preparing for the upcoming school year (especially since I have to start from scratch!) because summer is ALMOST OVER!!! :(
So far this summer, my 2-year-old and I have visited the library several times. A few times ago, we checked out a random alligator book because we had been talking about the letter A and alligators, and she really likes animals. The book was Alberto the Dancing Alligator, one I had never heard of before (click on the picture to head over to Amazon to check it out).
It ended up being a really cute little book! It's about a little girl and her pet alligator, Alberto, that both love to dance. One day while dancing in the bathroom, Alberto slipped, fell in the toilet and got flushed down to the sewer! (And don't worry, no gross toilet nonsense in this book.) The rest of the book describes his adventure under the city and how he makes it back home. I had to read it to her a bajillion times, of course, so now I also know it pretty well! Anyway, I ended up making a few activities to go along with the book for bigger kids but first, I'll show you my sweet little girl's alligators that she made!!:
Aren't they soooo cute?!? I'm not biased or anything. ;)
ANYWAY, I put together a little pack of activities that are appropriate for 1st-2nd and maybe 3rd graders. Here is the one of the writing activities included in the pack:
And here is a sample page from the pack:
