When I started No Time For Flash Cards I started it with the intention of trying to give my friends who were at home with their kids some fun activities to fill in their day. When I taught I would always link the book I read at opening circle time with our art exploration for the day. It gave the students focus and padded the learning on both ends. We didn’t hit the kids over the head with facts or structure but a little themed continuity went a long way in our exploration of the chosen topic. After more than 5 years of blogging I have paired countless books with crafts. Consider this list of 25 a cheat sheet. I hope you find it useful.For the full craft tutorials click the craft title under each pair. The book title is an affiliate link and will take you to Amazon.com
If you love activities that match with books I have 15 wonderful lesson plans to go with popular children’s books and so much more in my book Little School!
