S is for Smelly Sock

We made this Smelly S using:
Chipboard cut from a cereal box for letter base
Orange Construction paper
A pair of old socks and scissors
Glue: stick and hot to adhere socks

Sock books we like:

A Pair of Socks by Stuart J Murphy, illustrated by Lois Ehlert is a great toddler/preschool age read to learn about patterns and matching. The end of the book even has a list of activities that will help children to learn these same concepts. The story itself is told from the perspective of a sock who is on a search for his mate.

Have you seen the Sock Monkey Books by Cece Bell? We like Sock Monkey Woogie Boogie: A Friend is Made. In this tale sock monkey needs a dance partner for a big celebrity dance. Unfortunately all his friends are unavailable which forces sock monkey to hold auditions for a partner (you might recognize some of the contestants like wind-up chattering teeth or a troll doll). When try-outs don’t go so well, however, Sock Monkey has to double his efforts and quite literally MAKE a new friend. Cute story, adorable illustrations.

New Socks by Bob Shea is a fun little read about a little chick who is feeling good in his new pair of bright orange socks. This story might inspire your little ones to throw on their favorite pair of socks and do some sliding across wood floor.
