If your kids love the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff then they will LOVE getting to take home this fun take-home bag!
As an extension writing activity, each student will have the chance to take Mr. Mouse (a printable mouse is included in the packet-the stuffed animal mouse is not provided) home and spend the evening with him. They then will get to write their adventures with Mr. Mouse in the journal and draw or include a printed picture of their time together. All of the instructions are included in a letter from Mr. Mouse that goes in the front of the journal. The student will then bring everything back the next day to share with the class--this is a great speaking and listening activity!
Altogether this packet includes:
-Instructions on making and using the take-home bag
-Instruction Letter from Mr. Mouse
-Journal Pages (in both ruled and lined options)
-name cards (for choosing a student each day)
-a printable mouse (incase you don't have a stuffed animal mouse)
I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do! Let me know if you have any questions!
