|Craft ideas: |
Make a ?quilt? out of construction paper - what special items would you want on it - draw.
What are some traditions in your family - draw and write the story.
*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions.
You can use them, but you dont have to use them.
You can expand upon them, or add your own twist.
Remember, though, that the focus of your time should
not be on the development and execution of a craft;
the focus should be on the read-aloud and the
enjoyment of the book!
