This is a perfect story for the first of the school year or actually anytime.
Your class will love it and it fits with Laura Numeroff's theme of If You Give...
There is a craft for posting as well as vocabulary.
Colorful and pictures included on the vocabulary cards.
Following the cards there are activities to practice word recognition, parts of speech and abc order.
The students will love writing about their opinion on taking a mouse to school and there is a cover for a class book so you can include all of their ideas for reading.
There is also a mini book for students to make about if you take a mouse to school.
Students are encouraged to gather their thoughts using several graphic organizers provided.
I love the comprehension pages which include sequencing, summary, and sort.
Finally there is a fact or fiction, compare and contrast, and other fun filled ideas!!
