“A Sick Day for Amos McGee” preschool book club


We began by talking about what happens when we get sick and what makes us feel better.

Read A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead. 

I set up a veterinary office with a doctor imaginary play kit the library had from a previous event. I had emailed the parents the day before to ask that their child bring in a stuffed animal. (I had a few extra on hand in case anyone forgot.) We first had to fill out their patient card, using this animal record sheet from Mother Natured.

I created a shape recognition “surgical anatomy” coloring activity sheet. surgery-anatomy

They then treated their animals at the veterinary office.

After the doctor’s office, they took their pets “home” for some oatmeal and tea (apple juice) like Amos McGee had when he wasn’t feeling well.
