The Napping House

I first heard about The Napping House by Don and Audrey Wood when our local librarian read it for preschool story time.  When I decided to do an Around the House preschool theme, I knew we HAD to include this book.

Luckily I’m not the only one who loves this book.  I found some cute line drawings of the characters on-line.  I colored them, laminated them, stuck magnet tape on the back of them and Noah laid each character on a cookie sheet in the order we got to them in the book.  Fun!

 

I love using books for sequencing activities because Noah attends to the story so much better if he has something in front of him he is using to follow along with.  Sequencing is one of those preschool concepts that is foundational for so much learning.  To follow directions, you must understand sequencing; to comprehend a story, you must understand sequencing; to understand science concepts and cause and effect, you must understand sequencing; even math involves sequencing.

  1. Ah, I love this book too – it’s what inspired the name of my blog – “the learning house – where everyone is learning . . . ” :) Great book. Looks like a fun sequencing activity to make it hands-on. Great job!
