Last week in Vegas I did a session called Back To School Bootcamp. A few teachers have emailed me asking for the words to the If You Take A Mouse to School book. So here you go!
Here’s how we use it:
- During preplanning our team took the mouse (they are at Kohl’s RIGHT now) around the school and posed him for pictures.
- We went to each location that our kids would visit during the day/week.
- Then, I typed up some text to link the pictures together and bound the pictures into a book.
- On the first day of school, we take our kids on a tour of the school using the book as our guide of where to go.
- In each place, as we meet the teacher/staff personnel there, we ask them if they have seen our mouse.
- We positioned the mouse in our LAST location with a bag of cookies!
- It makes for a fun way to do the school tour.
This book is soooo old that I don’t even have the text on my computer anymore, but it is still one of my favorite first week activities.
