To make the activity, I took a picture of each page of the book. I printed the pictures (wallet size) and laminated them.
To do the activity, I read the book to E and I asked her to find the picture of each animal before I turned the page (while I was reading the 2nd page telling the animal that she would see next). After I turned the page, she matched the picture to the animal on the page. She LOVED this activity...until she was distracted by a pair of fancy high heeled "toos" (you can see them in the background of the 2nd picture). I think this is an activity that my little animal lover is going to enjoy for a while, and I love that I have so many activities already made and ready for her!
great idea. I think that the little girls could even do this. I don't have that book, but another I think I'll try it with.ReplyDelete
