Plant a Kiss (by Amy Krause Rosenthal; book not included) is a super cute story about Little Miss who plants and grows a kiss. The simple text and beautiful illustrations makes it great for early elementary literacy skills.
This 29 page pack includes 2 activities AND a craft...awesome!
The first activity is rhyme matching: print, laminate, and cut the tree and heart cards. Place them facedown on the table and have students flip cards to make rhyme matches. (pages 2-5)
The second activity is synonym matching for story vocabulary: print, laminate, and cut the Little Miss and watering can cards. Place cards facedown on the table and have students flip cards to make synonym pairs. (pages 6-7)
The final activity is a (pre) Valentine's Day craft. Available to print in color or black and white! Students glue a flower pot to a page, cut out a heart and kiss it, then plant it in their pot. After students leave (or before they come back for their next session), glue the flower over their pot with a Hershey Kiss glued in the middle. When they return (the week of Valentine's Day), they will see that they grew a Kiss! Included are enough printables for 12 students (3 pages of pots, 6 pages of flowers, and 1 page of hearts - both in color and black-and-white) but print as many copies as needed for your class or caseload (pages 8-28).
My students love this book and the quick activities! If you and your students love this, too, please leave a rating and feedback!
Thanks and Happy Valentine's Day!
