Read Across America week is quickly approaching, so for this week’s Literacy Snack idea, we’re talking spots!
This week, we’re reading, Put Me In The Zoo by Robert Lopshire.
“Spot believes he deserves to be in the zoo with the other amazing animals. In this Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss, Spot shows two young friends all the exciting things he can do with his spots. From changing their color and juggling them to moving them onto everything around him, you won’t believe what Spot can do.”
It’s a perfect book for this time of year as well as a lot of the students are able to read this book on their own.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
For this week’s snack, we’re making the leopard from the book with all of his spots!
For each student, you’ll need
1 Eggo waffle
1 mini Oreo cookie
2 mini Nilla Wafers
The leopard is super easy for the students to put together. They can place the candy eyes on, and the mini Oreo as his nose. The two Nilla wafers are his ears, and they can place the Skittles all around his face as his spots! He’s so fun and turns out adorable!
While the students are enjoying their snacks, I made a free printable for them to work on. They get to draw spots on the zoo and spots on them!
