A Busy Day's Worth of Activities,
OR a Unit Theme,
OR Cross-Curricular Book Study
Literacy, phonics, art, math, music, gym, writing, fine motor all based on the children's classic Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
This packets includes materials to enrich and expand upon the book Caps for Sale.
Includes: story-telling ideas and activities; four math pages; problem solving story page; word family work, a cute monkey craft with templates and sample; suggestions for recordings to use; gym games; writing lesson; I made this unit intending to use it for an emergency substitute packet. I place all the materials in a XL ziploc bag ready for a substitute teacher. There are more than enough educational and fun activities for a full day of kindergarten or first grade. Teachers can also use the packet to build a theme around monkeys with a unit on hats.
NEW!! Added a simpler, easier monkey craft. Now two versions. Choose the one that's best for your students.
See blog for photos of new craft.
