Celebrate Reading!

My students love, love, love celebrating Read Across America week.  There are so many great books to expose to children throughout the year, but this week always seems to make reading just a little bit more fun!
We read One Fish, Two Fish and made these delicious cookies! Next time I need to remember the blue food coloring to turn our icing blue for the water! 
Then we read Green Eggs and Ham and played this super cute roll and color game from Rowdy in First Grade.
Of course we had to read The Cat in The Hat and make our own hats to match!
The next game was my students' favorite! We read There's a Wocket in my Pocket and we played pin the wocket in the fun!
We read My Many Colored Days and made these cute books.  (This idea came from Pinterest, but I can't find the pin now to link it to.) The students drew a picture on each page of soothing that was the matching color.  They turned out adorable!
We made these little Happy Birthday cupcakes to decorate our bulletin board along with a writing activity on our favorite author.
We also try to tie our books into our center work this week.  In the activity below, students had to read the directions to color in the cats correctly.
 In Roll, Add, and Color students roll two dice and add them up.  Then, they follow the color key to color their picture in.
 Another skill we have been working on is counting base ten blocks (with counting the 'cube train' as ten and not counting the blocks individually).  The kids did great with this Spin and Dot activity.
 This week we will be using a bunch of activities from my Read, Read, Read! pack on TPT.  Would love to hear your great reading ideas for the week!!
