When I went to place my Scholastic book order a couple weeks ago, I came across this book and just couldn’t pass it up.
For this weeks literacy snack, we’re reading, Black Belt Bunny, by Jacky Davis.
In this adorable book Black Belt Bunny is fast and strong and has seriously awesome moves—from front-kicks to back-flips to air-chops. Then he’s faced with something new, something every bunny must learn, something he might not be as good at: He has to make . . . a salad. Black Belt Bunny tries to escape. He even disguises himself with a fake mustache. But when he finally hops to it, he discovers that his seriously awesome moves come in pretty handy.
Black Belt Bunny uses his chopping and slicing skills to make a salad in this fun book, but no we’re not making a salad today. You absolutely can if you’d like to with this book, but that just didn’t fit into our schedule this time. Instead, we are having dessert! At the very end of the book, Black Belt Bunny gets to side-kick a watermelon for dessert, so we’re having watermelon!
watermelon slices – one or two per child depending how large you cut them
While the students are enjoying their “dessert”, I created a free printable for them to work on. They get to draw all the fruits and vegetables that Black Belt Bunny chopped and sliced to make his salad.
You can download the free printable from my teacherspayteachers store below.
I hope your kids love this book as much as mine do!
See you next time!
