bringing books alive ideas

Welcome back to Tuesday Tots, thank you so much for linking up last week. What a wonderful selection of activities and fun we had – I’ve included some in our weekly newsletter and here are 10 more, Activities for bringing books alive. One great way to encourage a lifelong love of reading with children is to bring the alive with activities and fun – for the reasoning behind see a guest post by Kim at The Educators Spin On It on the blog about Creating Activities for Books.

First off from Inspiration Laboratories with some Little Hoot models and props (we love this book pop along and check out our post as well for a different set of activities)

Here come the girls is having a “Yes Day” as part of the Virtual Book Club for Kids.

Like Mama like daughter has done some fantastic activities based on J’s all time favourite book Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see?

Really bring books alive by creating some costumes based on the books and Mommy and Me book club have a round up of 21 fantastic book based costumes for you.

Another one from Mommy and Me Book Club this time to go with the book Spoon a full programme of activities that you could do included a recipe, crafts and activities.

This has to be a first for Tuesday Tots but one of our features includes a video of the book plus amazing links to where you can find some related topics. So from Kindergarten & Preschool for Parents & teachers some Halloween fun with a book and video.

Five fantastic Activities to go with the book Duck! Rabbit! from The Good Long Road.

From Home Learning Journey they are creating their own Nature Book learning about an animal for each letter of the Alphabet – this week it’s the letter E and Emperor Penguins.

Another Duck! Rabbit! post with a gorgeous puppet to make to bring the book alive this time from The Pleasantest Thing.

The last one is our own Little Hoot pine cone owls which with 10 activities to bring books alive I couldn’t not include.
