Story Time Extension: Make Reading Fun!!

guest post by Wendy

I love reading to my children. We find ourselves cuddled up in the chair reading books several times a day. If you have a favorite title, a great way to extend that book is to create an activity based on something that happened in the story.

 

Today I read The Gingerbread Man to Lani and my other child care children. To extend that story we baked our own gingerbread cookies. While baking the cookies we talked about the book. What were their favorite parts? Singing the silly song. Discussing if cookies could really run and talk.

 

Here are some pics from our morning!! (oh yes, I washed the table before rolling out the dough)

 

Happy Reading….
