Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: Under My Hood I Have a Hat by Karla Kuskin
Why we love this book:
The text is a simple rhyming chant, taking children through the steps of getting dressed for snowy, winter weather. Children love the sing-song pattern, the colorful pictures and the main character. However, the girl’s little dog, who helps her get dressed and sips tea, is the real show stealer in this book. The children just love that little dog. Under My Hood I Have a Hat opens the door to many winter weather learning activities . We’ve put together links to winter activities, books and FREE printables. Bundle-up and enjoy!
*We are in love with this cute book so much that we also gave away a copy last winter. Be sure to leave a comment on this post to enter this year’s GIVEAWAY.
After taking a winter nature walk as described in the above link, the children can illustrate their own Let’s Play I Spy On My Winter Nature Walk.
The children can use adjectives to describe the items they spy or a pattern similar to the one used in Let’s Play In The Snow by Sam McBrantney, “I spy something that belongs to a tree.”
Print this book FREE: Let’s Play I Spy Shapes On My Winter Nature Walk
To spark a little creative thinking, the children can illustrate a Let’s Play I Spy Shapes book.
You can find step by step directions for sparking these creative illustrations in our post that accompanied the FREE printable book: It looked like a dot.
