A Fun Freebie....For a Fun Reason!

My one year Blogiversary is coming up (next week actually!)  I have a fun giveaway planned with donations from over 25 FABULOUS bloggers and TPT sellers.  I can't wait to get it started! 

BUT. . . since it's not officially one year yet I thought I'd start celebrating a little early by offering a FREEBIE. . . a gift from me to you!  

My kids had a lot of fun with this little project this week.  I started by reading them a predictable story about cereal:

After several days of reading the story, which the kids caught onto very quickly, we made our own pages:

I took pictures of the kids with their chosen cereal:

Then we added their pictures to their page.  Once the book is done (I had a few kids missing Friday. . . don't want to bind it until they're all done)  we'll read it together and the kids will complete this tally mark page:

The kids LOVED it!

If you'd like to try this with your class click:
Too subtle??????  Didn't want you to miss where to click!

Don't forget to check back later this week!  The giveaway starts SOON!
