Storytime From A to Z: Letter O

Our Homeschooling Coop is currently over for the year.  We were able to complete 24 of the 26 letters from Storytime From A to Z.  I wanted to share the two letters that we didn't do and a few ideas for each.
 Officer Buckle & Gloria (Caldecott Medal Book)

Review from Amazon:  Officer Buckle is a roly-poly bloke, dedicated to teaching schoolchildren important safety tips, such as never put anything in your ear and never stand on a swivel chair. The problem is, Officer Buckle's school assemblies are dull, dull, dull, and the children of Napville just sleep, sleep, sleep. That is, until Gloria the police dog is invited along! Stealthily pantomiming each safety tip behind Officer Buckle's back, Gloria wins the children's hearts. Meanwhile Officer Buckle assumes the cheers and laughter are all for him. As the master comedian Jerry Lewis once explained, every slapstick artist needs a straight man! Children will be highly entertained by the laugh-out-loud, adorable illustrations in this 1996 Caldecott Medal winner, while learning the value of teamwork and a pawful of nifty safety tips. (Ages 4 to 8)

Here are some FREE printables!
