We are reading A Loud Winter’s Nap and doing a tortoise craft and activities to go along with the book. It’s so fun! Join in on the fun too!
We have been learning the letter W this week for preschool at home.
One of our favorite things to do when learning a new letter is to gather books that have the letter. Then, we find the letter on the cover and in the pages while we read.
It’s like a game for my son. Plus, he is introduced to new literature. Yay!
If you haven’t noticed yet (tehe), my friend Beth (from Days with Grey) and I have been teaming up each month to provide a book and a craft/activity that you can do with your kiddos to help prepare them for story retelling.
They absolutely don’t have to master the skill now. But, introducing them to the idea is a great way for them to have a great kindergarten year.
You can see a couple of our past Book Box Story Retells here: Room on The Broom, Dragons Love Tacos, The Watermelon Seed.
So, I was really happy when this month’s book box, A Loud Winter’s Nap (aff), had the letter W in it. It goes perfectly for our W week (W is for Winter)! Yippee!
I thought an egg carton tortoise and craft stick sled would be the perfect craft for this book. So, that is what we made!
