Do you read “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff?

It’s one of my students’ favorite stories; and perfect for sequencing!

With that in mind, I decided to make a flip-the-flap booklet, to help students not only practice sequencing but enjoy retelling the story as well. It’s a super-fun transitional activity after you’ve read the book, and an easy way to reinforce these standards.

Easy-peasy for you too, as it’s simply “Print & Go”.

I purposely did not number the pages, so you can assess comprehension.

Be sure and check the PREVIEW for samples.

Simply run the mouse pattern off on construction paper or card stock.

Students color & trim. This becomes the sturdy “base” of their booklet.

Students color, cut & collate the pages into a little book, which is then glued to the base.

I've included black & white patterns, as well as colorful ones, so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share.

Because children absolutely love giving their opinion, the last page allows them a chance to rate the story with a thumbs up or down, as well as coloring in a star ranking.

To further check comprehension, I’ve included a “color, cut & glue” worksheet too.

As another way to assess comprehension, as well as include some writing practice, there’s also a “Here’s What Happened…” worksheet, which can be done as a whole group with younger children.

When everyone is done, have children pick a partner and take turns telling the story, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” to each other.

We sometimes do this sort of thing with our older reading buddies.

Afterwards, encourage students to share their mouse craft with their parents, once again retelling the story.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun time flipping and flapping as you practice these standards.
