These Take Home Book Packs are a fun way to strengthen the home-school connection with your students and their families! Parents will enjoy getting to share these classic stories with their children, and can then extend their understanding of the story and practice Literacy & Math skills with the two activities that are included in each Book Pack.
Please check out the Preview for a detailed look at these Book Packs!
In my classroom, I send Book Packs home on Mondays, and they are due back by Friday. When the child takes home a Book Pack, their families will read the book together and then complete the activities together reviewing Math & Literacy skills they have learned in class.
Skills covered in the activities:
Counting by 10s
Counting Backwards from 20
Included in your download are printables for 8 Take Home Book Packs.
For each Book Pack, you will receive:
-1 Cover Sheet with instructions for the families
-2 Printable Activities
-Labels to attach to plastic baggies to hold activity pieces
You will also receive:
-Parent Permission Letters
Items you will need to purchase separately:
-Plastic envelopes to hold book and activities
when sent home (I use the Pendaflex View Front Envelopes with elastic
closures, but you can even just use large plastic baggies!)
-Plastic baggies to hold activity pieces
-Extra items for activities - assorted buttons, popsicle sticks for stick puppets, 1 die, 2 playing pieces for game board, 1 brass brad
