Goodnight Moon

Noah still loves to read this classic, so here are some of the activities we did along with the reading of the book.

  • Memorize the rhyme "Hey diddle-diddle"
  • Find the "young mouse". He is hiding somewhere in all the double pages.
  • Read "Goldilocks and the 3 little bears" (this was the very first time I read this story to him. We used Jan Brett's version...LOVE her illustrations!)
  • Read the Little Golden Book "The Three Little Kittens" (this is a good add-on with the rhyme "2 little kittens and a pair of mittens)
  • Read "Hush, A Thai Lullaby" and "Hush, little one"
  • Ate cream of wheat for breakfast (my version of a "bowl of mush")
  • Find shapes throughout the book (this is another suggestion from the manual)
  • Memorize the poem (entire story)
  • Talked about the moon phases (used google image for this one)
  • Played the Goodnight Moon boardgame.
