I am very excited to be representing Arizona Booking Across America event where educators from across the US have teamed up to offer some AMAZING stories and activities for all the different states!
What I love most about the book I selected is many of us already do a unit or book study on The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly… so it only seemed fit to share There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea because you don’t have to live in AZ to enjoy it!
This funny story is filled with lots of commonly found items from Arizona – cactus, coyotes, and even a 10 gallon hats! What could be more AZ than that?
So we read the book – well we sang the book because I have a problem reading books that have a corresponding song. My favorite line “it took lots of practice to swallow a cactus” but the kids favorite hands down was singing “Yippee-o-Ki-Yee!”
Coming up with an activity for this book was SO easy because the author Jennifer Ward had already done so for us! In fact, she created 5 amazing activities to go with the book! Everything from sequencing that matches the illustrations of the book to taste testing of foods typically known in AZ.
Seriously how amazing is that? We did the sequencing activity because the kids just love having the graphics to retell a story! You have to check out her webpage because she has several other stories that would fit this theme and they ALL HAVE LESSON PLANS! Thank you Jennifer Ward!
But it gets better! Jennifer Ward has graciously offered to give one lucky reader a copy of this book!
