Are You My Mother? {Printable Matching Game}

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

To celebrate Mother's Day this week we are reading the book Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
My children giggle at the silly story line (The bird is in search of his mother. Is the cow his mother? Is the airplane his mother?). I love the repetition in this book. It helps my children feel comfortable guessing the words as they learn to read. The text is predictable and they can look at the simple illustrations for hints.
I created this worksheet so you could have children color it, then draw lines to the matches or try cutting the animals out to use as a matching game.


LITERACY ACTIVITY:
Print the free worksheet below to have cards for a matching game for the children’s book Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman.
Are You My Mother Worksheet

To Print: Click the word ‘Scribd’ in the lower left corner of the image, or click here.
Free Printable for non-commercial use only. I found the images from various free clipart sources on Google to create this worksheet.

TO PLAY: Cut out the animals in a rectangle card shape.  I hand wrote the names of the animals on the back of the mother cards. I asked my son to turn over a blank card (with a baby animal), then he would read the words to find the matching mother.

My kids love this book, but they could not play a game about it unless there was a snort involved-- maybe the snort could be the mother and a shovel could be it's baby?
