If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Our Family Math and Literacy Night in the spring of 2000 was a huge success! Families of students in both the AM Kindergarten and Extended Day class were invited to attend this special evening. All of our activities for the evening were centered around the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff. Kindergarten students and their families participated in math games, literacy activities, crafts, and a create a snack project.

Each family in attendance received a folder containing directions for each activity set up during the evening of the Family Night, ideas for extensions at home, coordinating math/literacy skills and concepts taught within each activity,  a take home game, and a feedback form.  Each kindergarten student who brought their family also received their very own copy of the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie to read again and again!
