Since Ty was a baby (and a highly visual, book-lover) I knew I would do something similar to this activity when he grew older, but was never quite sure how I would go about it or what books I would use. Seeing a couple of my favorite bloggers making matching cards to go along with the book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" (by Eric Carle) made it perfectly clear how I would go about it! Thank you!
Tyler's task is to match the cards to the book. I wasn't sure if this would be too difficult as there are so many cards, but he has done really well and took to it quickly. He enjoys matching everything around him so this activity really builds upon his skills and interests.
Ty also decided to match his jumbo safari animals with the cards and book as well, which wasn't surprising. Often when we read a book and he knows we have a object in our home that is the same as one in the book, he'll run to grab it and bring it back to match. This activity fits him so well!
