Walking Activities and Book Suggestions

Practice listening skills and following directions by having the children walk in various ways (stomp, glide, slide, clomp, tiptoe, etc.)

Read the book I Went Walking by Sue Williams.  Go for a walk and then have the students create their own version of the story.  Each page should begin “I went walking.  What did I see? I saw a (name an object and its color) looking at me.”

Read the book When the Elephant Walks by Keiko Kasza.  The book begins “When the elephant walks he scares a bear who frightens a crocodile…” and so on down to a little mouse.  Have the children make up their own version of this silly tale reinforcing size, big/small.

Read The Listening Walk by Paul Showers.  Take your own “listening walk” and list all of the sounds the students hear.

This is an example activity from my Letter W Unit – Differentiated Letter Writing Pages and Activities.
