For this month’s Children’s Book Club, Steph and Jess suggested we read the book The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen. This is apparently a very popular children’s book and there are lots of ideas available for projects to go along with it! There are also other books about the Pout-Pout fish, but we stuck with the original.
Simon even made a video of himself reading parts of the story and acting it out with the toys. Next, we made a water play area and this occupied Simon for awhile!
Even on multiple days!
We also took a field trip to see the fish at the pet shop!
For a writing activity, we used the sheet found here and Simon made up his own version of the Pout-Pout fish refrain.
His says he’s a smiley fish with a smiley face and he spreads the cutie-cuties all over the place. He came up with that on his own!
For a craft project, we used the template found here. Simon painted it blue, and added the mouth himself.
Simon also enjoys coloring pages and we found a bunch here!
Have you read The Pout-Pout Fish?
Bonus! Gabbie read a book for this month’s Kids Summer Reading Club with Johanna, Heather, and Jenna! This month’s choice was Because of Winn-Dixie. The book may be a bit younger than the books Gabbie usually reads, but she seemed to enjoy it!
1. When Winn-Dixie smiles, because it’s funny that her dog smiles.
2. Cause she felt bad for him.
3. Yes because I want to see what sadness tastes like.
4. That a lot of the things happened because of Winn-Dixie.
5. Because her father never talked to her about her mother.
6. To say that Winn-Dixie was hers.
