Picture Book Activity

Too Many Balloons by Catherine Matthias is a fantastic picture book for preschool and kindergarten children.  The book teaches and reinforces colors, numbers, and animals.  You can do a math activity with it, you can do a reading activity with it, you can do a Spanish activity with it, you can even do science activities with it.  It is so flexible and easy to modify to fit any child or lesson plan. I have created a fantastic picture book activity to go along with the book!

Each page in this picture book activity pack, corresponds with a page in the  book,.  If the girl purchases 1 red balloon for the lion in the book, the children get to give the lion one red balloon.  Use little colored stickers (like the ones you use for garage sales) as your balloons, or have the child draw a circle.This activity pack contains worksheets in both color and black and white. The students read the book Too Many Balloons. Afterwards they recreate the book using little colored circle stickers.  This book reinforces color and numbers!
