I am a librarian for K-5 and last week I was begged by a K student to read "A Bad Case of STripes" to his class tomorrow. I have looked for age appropriate activities to do (in my library setting) but haven't found much. I usually do songs fingerplays, rhymes, coloring or small art projects to go with the books. Although I have to keep the K's learning for 45 minutes, the book seems long, so I am a little concerned about reading it with nothing to break it up. I usually make one lesson for all of our 6 Kindergarten classes for the week but I'm not sure what to do on this one! Any suggestions from you pros would be appreciated! I have reached deperation!

My kiddos love that book! I agree that it is a bit long but on storylineonline.net, there is a celebrity that reads the story. There are lots of stories on the site. I believe that Sean Astin reads Bad case of the stripes. Don't know if this helps but it is what I do. I have the hardware that puts my computer screen on my tv so that is how we watch it.

Thanks so much for your ideas and help! The story is a little long but you can stop it and stretch, talk about it, etc. Thanks again.
