Ya know, ever since our time with Five in A Row Literature Based Curriculum, I love extending a storybook through some type of craft and/or learning activity!

 If you browse through the blog, I am sure you will find lots of fun go along activities for all kind of storybooks, such as:

After reading 10 Black Dots with your child, present them with this free counting printable to practice counting numbers 1 to10.


Using the tip of the q-tip, your child will make the correct amount of dots in each number with black paint.  Hence, your preschool or Kindergartener will be making 10 black dots all his/her own as they count and paint their way to 10.  

This is a great way to work on math skills such as:
  • counting
  • 1:1 correspondence
  • number recognition
And bonus, the q-tip painting adds sneaks in strengthening those all important fine motor skills!
