The other day I was walking through Target and this book caught my eye on the end cap. I peeked through it and just knew it would be perfect for our next literacy snack!
This week, we are reading, The Smart Cookie by Jory John. The cookie in the story has never felt like a smart cookie no matter how hard she tries. Especially in comparison to all the clever cupcakes and brilliant rolls in the bakery. In the end, she is reminded that perfect scores and having all the answers aren’t the only ingredients for intelligence. Sometimes all you need is a sprinkle of confidence and some creativity.
This is such a great book that can be read at the beginning of the school year, or even at the end of the year. Your students can reflect on how much they have learned and how far they have grown throughout the school year.
This is a great book that your student will be able to relate to and can help them all realize that they are smart cookies! For our snack this week, we are having smart cookies!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
For our snack to go with the book, we are having yummy sprinkle-covered frosted sugar cookies. These are always a favorite of the kiddos and go perfectly with the cookie from the book. You can usually find them at the grocery store, Walmart, or Target.
I made a free printable to go along with the book for your little learners to work on while they are enjoying their snack. They will get to reflect and write about what makes them a smart cookie. They can draw a write about it.
You can download the Literacy Snack Smart Cookie Read-Aloud free printable from my TeachersPayTeachers store by clicking the green box below.
Another option is to give your kiddos a small pack of cookies and attach this cute free printable smart cookie tag. You can grab that here. They make a great treat to give out before a test or as an end of the year gift too!
I hope your students enjoy this Literacy Snack Smart Cookie Read-Aloud!
See you next time!
