Of course, when I think about squirrels, my favorite series by far is the Scaredy Squirrel series. Who wouldn’t love scaredy squirrel? The vocabulary is rich. The plot is entertaining, and the character development?? Well, scaredy squirrel is scared of EVERYTHING. If you love scaredy squirrel, you might check out these resources to go with it. Just click the images below to download the activities.
Another favorite from this list is Nuts to You. Lois Ehlert is a wonderful author to study in the fall, and Nuts to You shares how and why squirrels gather nuts. These books are best for late first grade to early second grade level. The unit to the right is free for Thursday only. The Lois Ehlert Author Study I have includes Nuts to You, Growing Vegetable Soup, Waiting on Wings, and Feathers for Lunch. [HERE] is the link for it.
Kids really do love watching squirrels, and there are many activities that you can enjoy whether you spend a full week or just a few days. I made a Nuts about Squirrels Pinterest board, and you can check that below.
