Use this companion pack of activities with the book If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Joffe Numeroff! Your elementary students will be able to practice sequencing, recall and comprehension, cause and effect, following directions, and more!


What awesome resources are included?
★ Sequencing Cards: The big version can be used as large visuals while telling and retelling story. If you print two copies of this version, then students can play memory matching games with the vocabulary. The small version can be used for sequencing on construction paper or a paint stick. A sentence strip is provided to use with the sequencing cards.
★ Retelling Setting Cards: This book goes from one location to another and back. By just showing your students the pictures of the settings, can they retell the story? Can they identify the activities that occurred in each place? A sentence strip is provided to use with the retelling setting cards.
★ What Did the Cat See? Worksheet: Students can recall items they saw in each location by writing them onto the worksheet. Use the visual on the previous page to elicit longer utterances.
★ Comprehension Board Game: Students can practice their recall and comprehension skills on the task cards to move across the board game. Various question types are used for practice.
★ Cause and Effect: Students must express the effect based on the cause provided. A visual is provided to assist students. If the student picks the “captain,” then they get an extra turn. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner. A worksheet with a graphic organizer is provided to have students practice writing/expressing causes and effects based on the game.
★ Basic Cause and Effect: Students will be provided with a visual and must match causes to their effects. You can use these cards for teaching, drilling, and practicing with memory matching games.
★ Compare and Contrast Worksheet: This includes a Venn diagram to compare/contrast a real cat vs. the cat in the story.
★ Beach vs. Not the Beach Worksheet: The cat in the story found a variety of items at the beach that he wanted to put into his pail. Sort the pictures into the correct category based on whether you would find them at the beach.
★ Cat Color by Antonyms: Students must express an antonym for a word in or related to the story in order to color the picture provided.


What are other customers saying about this product?
"I love book based activities for sub plans. I don't worry as much when I know my students will be left with engaging activities. Quality variety in this pack. Thank you!"

"These materials are great and offer a lot of flexibility. I am using them with students from pre-k through third grade, including children with autism. The materials are adorable, and the content is great!"

"I loved the 'Where do you find it?' page! I printed an extra copy of the pictures at the bottom of the page, and put velcro on them and then put a strip of velcro beneath 'Beach' and 'Not the beach' for my younger students to velcro the correct picture to the correct box (instead of cutting and gluing). I also laminated the big pictures from the things in the story and will have each child practice their fine motor skills by clipping a clothespin to the correct picture from a choice of two to focus on listening comprehension for each page. This group of kiddos needs a lot of 'hands on' stuff for maintaining attention to books. Thanks for the great packet!"
