Parts of a Book for Kids

Learning about parts of a book can start with preschoolers, but typically it is taught to Kindergartners and grade 1 students.  This literacy activity is a fabulous back to school activity or part of your literacy book center or library resource. Use the parts of a book printable along with playdough to learn the different parts of a book while having fun! Playdough is not just a fun activity for kids. It is also a wonderful sensory activity for kids of all ages. Squeezing and manipulating the playdough helps kids not only calm down but experience the sensory aspects. This is also a great tool to help strengthen fine motor skills. Rolling playdough into a snake is a great way to help strengthen the muscles and dexterity of the fingers and hands that help kids learn to hold a pencil correctly or tie their shoes.

Once you have the pages printed, you can choose to laminate them. This is great when using playdough so that the playdough doesn’t stick to the paper. If you don’t have access to a laminator, we like to use sheet protectors or dry erase pockets. Both of these are great for playdough or dry erase markers.
