Book Activity: Cami Kangaroo Has Too Much Stuff

I have found the most adorable book that is SO realistic and relatable for students (and me)! It's called, "Cami Kangaroo Has Too Much Stuff!" This book is about a kangaroo named Cami who had to clean her room so she could be on time to a party. Her parents sent her to her room to clean and in the midst of cleaning, she got overwhelmed and very distracted by all of the cool things she found. Also in the midst of cleaning, she realized that she had to return a toy to a friend... but, she couldn't find the toy! Oh no!! The story ends with a lesson that Cami learns about being organized and a way that can also help her clean up effectively.

Here are some images from the text. The illustrations are just beautiful.

In addition to this amazing book, I had to create some fun activities for my students to do. Once I got going, my son asked to color a Kangaroo too... So, I may have also thrown in a few Pre-K activities too!

This book lends itself to such great discussion, text connections, character analyzing and focusing on story elements. It's PERFECT for the classroom. I'm thinking, it'll be our first read aloud series of the year.

Here are some of the toddler activities I created to go along with this book!
There is an adorable Kangaroo puzzle and a kangaroo coloring page with the letter K! 
My little man and I may have worked on a few other letters too! :-)

If you own this book or are about to own it very soon, here are the FREE activities for you to use with it!
