Dogs, Donughts and Desserts, too!



My kids love Laura Numeroff stories. One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading If You Give a Dog a Donut

We ..
  • made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about.
  • went on a picture walk through the book. We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.
  • cololored the cover of our folder
  • learned that D is for dogs, donuts and desserts
  • graphed our favorite dessert
  • read about Laura Numeroff
  • used different size dog bones, a tray of tempera paint and paper to make prints.
  • looked for information about dogs, then we compared real and fictional dogs. 
  • used the necklace to recalled the events of the story. 
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events
  • finished the sentence If you give a dog a _____, he will ...
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • talked about dogs
  • discussed the many useful jobs dogs have: police dog, seeing eye dog, sled dog, rescue dog, guard dog, etc.
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • used magazine pictures to make a dogs collage.
  • made a donut with a paper plate and decorated it with fav art materials
  • learnt a new chant
Smart Dogs
Five stuffed dogs sitting in a row.
"Tell me please, what do you know?"
The first one said, "I know my name."
The 2nd one said, "I know a game."
The 3rd one said, "I know a song."
The 4th one said, "I know right from wrong"
The 5th one said, "I'll tell you true, What I know is that I Love you."
