Book: Corduroy By: Don Freeman
Verse: Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times"
Age: 35 months, 17 months
This book has been so fun! We owned this book, so that is why I chose this one to row next. I also wanted to continue with the 'bear' theme we had been doing.
We spread the activities over two weeks because we had some things going on and I was also late getting the print outs ready this week. There are just so many fun things to do that it is hard to choose some to only fit into 5 days!
Read the book. Colored "Corduroy"
|I couldn't find anything online like this that I wanted, so I created this in Word. :) I was impressed with her patterning skills! They have come a long way in a short time.|
|And of course Declan wanted in on the action too.|
|As they finished their snack I put the video of a read-aloud on. Raelynn followed along in the book.|
Read book and made Corduroy Puppet
|When Raelynn found the buttons she put them in a container|
Read the book and "sewed" (laced) buttons on a string
|This is a huge hit with Raelynn! I made it to practice her buttoning skills, but it doubled as an activity to go with the book!|
|I hid buttons around the house and Declan and Raelynn went looking for them. After that, Daddy thought it would be fun to hide popcorn and raisins around the house---guess which one they found faster??|
Read the book and made our own rhyming book:

Felt bears, Teddy Graham snacks, sing and dance to "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear", and a teddy bear hunt
|Photo courtesy of Raelynn! She wanted to take a picture of her bears. Was going to make these a little more elaborate, but the kids loved them the way they were and enjoyed playing with them|
I really think this was the highlight of the week!! Creating a fun memory is the best part of creating fun activities with literature. In Corduroy, the bear rides up an escalator---so that is what we got to do at the airport!! So double the fun-we got to pick up Mimi AND ride the escalator! :)
We also own this book so we read it
