"BERRY" Good Books: Week 1

Here's the plan.  I'll post a new book each week during the summer.  The books will have a small FREEBIE and some ideas for sharing these with your students.

"Berry" Good Books for Summer Reading:  the cow loves cookies.  What a fun book about the farm.  Everyone's happy on the farm, especially the cow and farmer.

This is such a cute book.  It has a great rhythm and you find yourself routing for the cow!  The book starts with the farmer feeding his animals.  The horse gets hay.  The chickens get feed.  The geese get corn.  The pigs get the gooey glop.  The dog gets doggie treats.  BUT the cow loves cookies.  And, by the way, the farmer loves cookies and... MILK. Everyone is happy.

The FREEBIE today contains both a verb match and initial consonant match.  The first activity is a recording sheet.  During the read aloud, ask the students to listen for the verbs in the story.  After the first read, use the vocabulary list above to match the verbs with the animals.  In a separate activity, have the students match the initial sounds to animals from the story.

Enjoy the book and enjoy the FREEBIE.  CLICK HERE or the picture below.
