I was so excited to see that the Kohl's Cares books and animals right now are from The Pout Pout Fish books by Deborah Diesen! If you aren't familiar with Kohl's Cares, you should be! Kohl's Cares is a program by Kohl's department store that supports Health & Education for kids. They choose a book series or author and have books and stuffed animals for $5 each. 100% of the profit from the sales goes back to support health and education for children. Not to mention that the hard-cover books and stuffed animals are wonderful for your classrooms. I happen to own many sets, such as Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Hungry Caterpillar, Kangaroo, & Duck; Dr. Seuss's Grinch & Max, and the Cat in the Hat; Winnie the Pooh's Pooh, Tiger, & Eeyore; the Mouse, Pig, & Moose from the If You Give A...series; and now the Pout-Pout crew shown below!
So since I found these and we're studying the Ocean, I just had to make a companion packet to go along with the story. If you aren't familiar with the book, it talks a lot about facial expressions and attitudes, which is also wonderful for social/pragmatic skills! The link to my packet is below, as well as an Amazon affiliate link for Pout Pout Fish!
Do you teach The Pout-Pout Fish book? If so, I'd love to hear from you!
