I don’t know about you, but dragons aren’t the only ones who love tacos! For this weeks Literacy Snack, we’re reading Dragons Love Tacos, by Adam Rubin.
“Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You’re in red-hot trouble.”
My kids absolutely love this book and I just knew I needed to turn it into one of our Literacy Snacks. We of course are having tacos!
for each student you’ll need
one taco shell – have you seen these Stand ‘n Stuff Shells? Best thing everrrrrr for kids!
I’m sure you’ve made tacos before so I’ll save you from instruction, but give you some tips. Save your sanity and buy the tacos shells that stand up. Life changing! For the ground beef, I made it at home and brought it in a crockpot and just kept it on low all day, stirring once in a while to keep it warm until we were ready to use it.
I included taco sauce since that’s what the dragons don’t like. You’ll have a few adventurous kiddos that will want to try it and I love that! I just made sure to get mild.
While the students are enjoying their snack, I created a worksheet for them to work on. It’s a word search with words from the book, words about tacos and dragons.
I know having tacos makes this the best day of the week for me. I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do.
Thanks for stopping by!
