Last month, we did shark activities. This month, I’ve once again teamed up with a few blogging friends to bring you our takes on back to school book activities!
I picked the book Maisy Goes to Preschool. I like that it portrays school as something that’s fun and not scary at all. E loves school and isn’t even intimidated by switching schools after the summer.
That doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy reading books with more problematic back to school themes like Llama Llama Misses Mama, but it’s definitely fun to see all the activities Maisy gets up to at school!
You don’t need to know the book to enjoy the printables in this pack, but the images focus on Maisy’s preschool activities from the book.
To help kids get in the mood for preschool, it has a few different simple activities: A back to preschool I Spy page, prewriting tracing pages, a coloring page, a few 3 piece puzzles, and dot marker letters.
Like my other I Spy pages, the one included in this pack has a counting and number recognition component. If that’s too advanced for your preschooler, just use the page to point out and talk about different preschool activities.
Watch the video to see all the pages in the pack in low resolution. The actual printable is high resolution!
