Product Details

The month of September is
our Laura Numeroff author study.
We start with the "What __ Do Best" 
series because we are studying families.
Next we go to Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers
because we start a theme on pets
and do a visualization activity I got from
TpT I believe. They visualize another animal
and what it could wear. Then we read
Why a Disguise? and write an opinion piece
on the best place to wear a disguise.
Our story souvenir is the fun mustache 
and nose glasses!
We read her other books throughout 
the month. Once a week, we read
one of her "If You Give a ___" books
and have the treat from the book.
We have enjoyed cookies and donuts so far!
We are a little behind...we had WAY to many
early outs due to the heat!

Here are two more visualization activities.
The poem is copied on the back.
I pass out the paper with this side up.
I read the poem and they visualize.
They draw what they visualized.
I read the poem again.
They turn their paper over to see 
the "real" illustration.
Both poems are by Shel Silverstein.
