It's time for Freebie Friday, featuring the one and only Scaredy Squirrel!
We love Scaredy Squirrel's books! What a fun character to read about! This furry little fellow is so timid that he makes every student feel incredibly brave by comparison.
I think I've mentioned to you how art-starved my students are, so I like to include simple drawing instructions at a center whenever I can. I was delighted to see these printable Scaredy Squirrel drawing instructions here.
Copyright Melanie Watt, of course! With these instructions at a library center, your students can draw their own bookmarks.
You can find more printable Scaredy Squirrel activities here.
We watch the Scaredy Squirrel book on BookFlix, that I purchase every year for our campus with book fair money (Scholastic dollars). This is a trailer for the Bookflix version of Scaredy Squirrel.
You could also introduce one of Scaredy's books with a book trailer.
And, of course, you could show this super-cute librarian-made video called "Scaredy Squirrel Goes to the Library!"
And, if you are as silly as I am, you might enjoy Scaredy Squirrel's version of "Call Me Maybe." Apparently SS has a show on CN.
He doesn't look quite so timid in his music video, does he?
Do you have any favorite Scaredy Squirrel activities?
