Monthly Activity Freebie

Start off 2013 - yes can you believe is 2013 with a super charming book!  Chicken Soup with Rice by Maurice Sendak.  I have this book in big book form and the adorable little books.

In the past I have started using this book in September and read it all year long.  This year I am going to start it in January!  We use a student booklet for them to read along with and keep in their book boxes to read independently or with their buddy.  The students get to illustrate their own copies.  Click below to get your own copy.  Let me know how it's going for you or what else you do with this great book!


  1. So excited to see this wonderful freebie. I just came across this book as I was sorting holiday books the last day of school. My book belonged to our children and I believe it was part of a 'monthly book club' I had for our oldest over 30 years ago. I didn't even think about the calendar connection as I placed it in my kinder-bookshelf. Now, it's going to be the highlight of our daily calendar work. Thank you!

    1. You are so welcome! I'm glad someone else can use it!!

  2. I love this book! Great idea to start in January! You just gave me my 1st 2013 idea to implement.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you for sharing! Our class is beginning an author study on Maurice Sendak next month. My kinders are sure to love this.
