As a way to incorporate more fun in our reading, I have planned on picking a few books for each day. We will read them then do something fun with them. Yesterday afternoon we chose to have some fun with Fancy Nancy at the Museum.
We first read the book then I surprised Selena with one of my old dresses. We put that on her then went through the house to find all the other things that Fancy Nancy might be wearing at any given moment. She had fun finding all the different things she felt she would need to transform herself into Fancy Nancy.
Keeping in theme of the story of the book, we discussed all the different masterpieces that Fancy Nancy found in the Museum. I then had Selena go on a scavenger hunt through the house to find examples of each type of art work mentioned in the book.

We had a lot of fun with this activity. Selena wore her Fancy Nancy outfit the rest of the day. Come back and check out all of our reading fun through the summer.
