This simple little craft and classic children’s book, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, make the Letter M is for Mouse lesson come alive in a preschool classroom. Your kids will love it!
I just love teaching preschoolers. Everything is new to 3 year olds. For instance, when I was teaching them about mice, I had to start with the basics: “One is called a “mouse”; more than one is called “mice. ” A few little sets of eyes got bigger. It was news to them!
On M is for Mouse day, we talked about what mice eat – fruit, grains and seeds – and that they sleep in the daytime. Another surprise to my little 3 and 4 year olds. I used a picture book to teach them the basics. The vivid pictures really kept their attention.
This is a sweet little craft that is so easy for your little ones to make.
