If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

If You Give a Dog a Doughnut


We will make giant paper cookies today! We will also play cookie memory and play a math game where we roll the dice to see how many sprinkles we will put on the doughnut.


Many of Laura Numeroff’s books start out with “If You Give…”

If You Give  a Pig a Pancake

We will make a new group story called “If You Give a Kid a…”  For fun we will have a pancake relay using foam pancakes and pancake flippers. Of course we will make a pig!


Laura Numeroff’s books have cause and effect in the story.

If You Give a Moose a Muffin

We will make headband antlers so we can look like the moose in the story. We will also bounce ping pong balls into muffin tins that have messages in.

We will eat muffins!


Circle story sequencing is a way to retell a story.

If You Take a Mouse to School

We will do a science experiment like in the story and do a volcano activity. We will also build with blocks and clay like the mouse did at school and draw a picture of our family.

Changes to the Environment

We will have a movie theater set up like in the story” If You Take a Mouse to the Movies” For small motor play we will have counting and matching games with cookies, cupcakes, and doughnuts. For large motor we will dance to music from a collection of mouse stories and songs.
