Last week we focused on cause and effect. We read some fun books as we did this. Before you check it out let me just say this….I know, I know, the books don’t flow. But there was no “theme” that was good for teaching cause and effect. I just picked literature that had easy to identify cause and effects. Here’s a look with some of our favorite read alouds!

We read If You Give a Cat a Cupcake and had a great discussion. Because my friends were familiar with Laura Numeroff’s books, this was great for introducing the topic. Each friend then wrote about a cause and effect from them book (they were EVERYWHERE!). I then let them have a little fun and make a cat to go with it. This was inspired by Mrs. Perry (whose blog is no longer published).
The last thing we did was read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. My teammate found this wonderful activity and so my friends did this, which I used as a simple assessment to see who still needed some reteaching. It was a fun filled week!
