Today I've got a FREEBIE mini companion pack for you in case you need some last minute V-day ideas. :) Here's how we're using Biscuit's Valentine's Day.
I print, laminated, and cut out the vocabulary pictures. Then, I attached them to the matching places in the book using velcro.
I set up all the pictures on my velcro mat and let the kids pull them off as we read the story.
I love using these cards as props, discussing vocabulary, and retelling the story. Another skill we work on is comprehension. These cute little puppy cards will help with that! I stuffed them all in this mini mailbox I snagged at Target's dollar spot. One of the words they use in the story is "deliver," so I used the mailbox to talk about the word and explain how mailmen deliver mail.
We worked on sequencing using the chart below. I had them draw pictures of the different parts of the story to show the order of what happened.
You can grab this freebie HERE!! Hope this helps some of you who may be in a bind! :) Please leave a comment below if you download. Happy Valentine's Day!
