5 Not a Box Lesson Plan and Activities

This morning my son was excited to find a brand new waffle box ready for him to use his creativity.  He eagerly grabbed the box, cut a rectangle out of one side, took his little cars and drove them inside.  It’s a garage, he yelled!  I thought to myself, you are right….It’s not a box!    So, today I have some fun ideas and activities for the book  Not a box.  This is a great book to help teach the letter B, or the word family ox ending, or…  just a fun lesson in creativity!  Today I have some  Not a Box Lesson Plan and Activities for you.

Not a Box Lesson Plan and Activities

Not a Box Activities and Lesson Ideas -Great for teaching the letter B, the ox word family, creativity... Fun preschool or kindergarten activity worksheets!

Today we are learning the letter B …(or the ox word family)…  Or, we are just going to have some good creative fun!  Today we will do some Not a Box Activities!

  1.  Make a list of things you can make with a box!  Lists are good things to make because they are a precursor to writing sentences.
  2. Discuss real vs. Fantasy – It this story real?  Can we help it to be real?  Do we use our imagination when we create our own ideas out of a box?  Does bunny know that the not a box is really a real box?  Do you know the not a box is really a real box?
  3. Have fun making things with the box! Students can work together to create imaginary things out of the box
  4. Make the Not a Box Activity book (free download below).  Draw all the different ideas of what a box could become…or what a box did become when you transformed all the boxes!
  5. Make things with a box!!  Go to a grocery store or “big box” store and ask for boxes if you need help finding boxes.  A lot of times they will give you boxes free of charge that you can use to explore and create.  One time I went to “Best Buy” and was able to pick up a HUGE washer box.  The kids had so much fun!

    1. Hi there, Were you able to figure out how to download the activity for free) If you had trouble, just write me an email at [email protected] Basically you have to enter your name/email into the form on the page (where it says name/emails) and it is automatically sent to you.

    1. Hi there,
      I think you were looking for some free resources on my site but were having some trouble. I updated my site and the free downloads disappeared. I fixed things now and I just entered your email so you should get the download.
      1) Check Spam – sometimes things go there.
      2) Subject is “Here is your free download” – there is a link inside. Sometimes that link is not hyperlinked…you may have to…
      3) copy/paste the hyperlink for the download. It should open or download into your download folder
      4) If you have trouble, write me at [email protected] (forward me the freebie email because I don’t know which freebie you wanted).

      Thanks! Have fun!
