If You Give A Mouse a Cookie

Gathering Activity: We read stories with our Mommies about mice.

Circle Time: We read the Book Club Selection If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff  and sang songs and did finger plays about mice and cookies.  We acted out the story using props such as a straw, tape, and blanket and tried to place them in the right order. 

Snack:  We started snack time right after circle time today because of our special activity.  We made cookies with our Mommies!  All of the ingredients were pre-measured and placed in containers.  Each child was given an item to place in the bowl.  As the recipe was read aloud, the children took turns placing their items into the mix.  Then they each got to help beat the cookie dough and scoop the cookies onto trays.  When they were ready to eat, we drank milk out of straws with our cookies.

Playtime Activity: While we waited for our cookies to bake, we played Cookie Monster Bingo.  If you don't have this game, you could play any type of bingo game and make small brown circles as cookie bingo markers.

Art Activity: When we finished enjoying our cookies and milk, we laid on the floor and drew pictures of our families on large paper, just like the mouse did in the book!
