This Summer Book Club Activity Pack has everything you need for a summer full of reading, and hands on fun!
My summer book club plans are designed for children in the 2-5 year old range but can be adapted for younger and older children as well. Every activity can be used at home with one or more children or adapted for use in a day care/preschool classroom. Book club is all about exploring and learning together while exposing children to rich language, fine motor skills, sensory learning, and a variety of basic concepts.
What is included in this bundle?
