Here is a fun activity to do at the beginning of the year with the book, "A Bad Case of Stripes."
"A Bad Case of Stripes" is a great book to teach children that it is okay to be different. After reading the book, you can create a class book! Each student completes a page that reads, "I really like to eat ________ even if no one else does." After each kiddo completes their page, I allowed them to color one stripe on the book title page.
I completed this activity with my kiddos at the beginning of the year, and after three months they still love to go back and read it!
