Book Activities

Book Activities for kids where they can make their own storybooks and complete them by coloring the pictures.

Kids can enjoy hearing some of their favorite stories with these fun Storybook Felt Board characters.   Storytellers can tell the story while placing the characters on the scene.  Great for parents and teachers to interact with the kids during storytime.  Ask the kids about the story, the characters and what they think might happen next.  What have they learned about the story and what do they think the story is trying to teach.

Have the kids take turns telling parts of the story so that they can be a storyteller too.  Fun ways to get the kids involved in reading and books.

To set up the storytelling stage, print and cut out the characters and scenes.  Glue velcro tape or coarse sandpaper to the back of the characters and place them onto the felt board you purchase or create.  You can use the story scenes to glue onto cardboard or hard surface and stick velcro tape to areas of the scene.  This will allow children or storytellers to attach the characters to the scene.   Laminate the scene and characters for longer life play.  You can then use tape at the back of the characters to attach to the laminated storyboard scene.

Encourage the kids to read at home and school by using the Reading Buddy Log Book where they can record the books that they have to family or classmates. This helps build their esteem and allows them to show off all their reading skills. The reading log book can be combined with an award for the amount of books read, i.e. have a reading marathon. Use the Bookmarks as a reminder about the reading buddy program. Parents and teachers will be so proud of the children’s accomplishments not matter how long it takes to fill a log book.

If the children can’t read yet, use the reading buddy log book to record how many books are read to them. Children learn so much when we read to them.

Watch the children grow with their reading and writing!
